Attend a START New Student Orientation
*required for students with no prior college experience
START New Student Orientation provides an overview of programs, services and the registration process and gives you a chance to meet with an advisor to plan your schedule.
You will have the ability to register after you’ve completed an in-person orientation and demonstrated valid placement test scores or completed English and math at another institution. You are required to show test results from another college/university, indicating math placement within the past year and English within the past two years, or transcripts that indicate that you have taken college level math/English at another institution.
For on-campus orientation information and to sign up, please access the following link: northseattle.edu/orientation
Students in Health and Human Services programs, Running Start, Workforce Education, International Programs and Basic Skills (GED, ABE and ESL) all have their own orientations and are not required to go through the START New Student Orientation. These students should contact their program advisors for more information.
Visit the Online Orientation Web pages. Browse/refer to them as often as needed to access the College's Web resources.
