New Student Orientation (NSO)

Welcome to New Student Orientation! As a new degree or certificate-seeking Owens student, New Student Orientation (NSO) is a required step in the enrollment process. NSO is the opportunity for you to learn about the tools, resources, and offices that will support you along your education journey at Owens. We will show you have to search the class schedule, how to navigate your Ozone account, payment options, and more!

NSO is offered both online and on-campus. Once you complete your admissions application, the online option will be available to you in your Ozone account. On-campus NSO sessions include placement testing, academic advising, financial aid/payment information, and assistance with building a class schedule and registration.

If you have a disability and need accommodations or adaptions during an on-campus NSO session, please contact the Disability Resource Center at (567) 661-7007 to make arrangements prior to signing up for orientation.
