New Student Advising (NSA)


All new degree and certificate seeking students* are required to attend a New Student Advising session.  On the day of your scheduled NSA session, our team will send you an email with your personalized schedule, new student information, enrollment instructions, and a Zoom link to meet with an advisor. We look forward to meeting you - welcome to the Triton community!


To be completed before your session:

  2.  Complete Online Orientation

  3.  Select a program/area of study  (If you have questions about choosing a program, please contact or visit our drop-in hours to speak with an advisor before signing up).
