New Student Orientation
The Counseling & Advising Center, the Office of Enrollment Services, the Office of Financial Aid, and Student Government at Yakima Valley College (YVC) sponsors New Student Orientation (NSO) to provide new college students an opportunity to learn how to navigate campus and introduce them to the YVC community.
At NSO, new students will begin to build a network of resources that will help them start their YVC journey on the right path. Students will learn about:
- The Student Code of Conduct
- Degrees and Programs Offered at YVC
- Academic Pathways and Advising
- College Catalog
- Important Date Calendars
- Academic Resources
- Financial Aid
NSO is required for all new students with less than 30 college level credits. Students that start at YVC in Summer Quarter must attend NSO in the following Fall Quarter.
