New Student Orientation

Welcome to Pellissippi State!

We are excited that you’ve chosen Pellissippi State Community College to start or continue your education. New Student Orientation is designed to help you start strong by connecting to the many student services available at the College.  

We offer two ways to connect:  

Required Online New Student Orientation (NSO)

Because New Student Orientation is so vital to student success and starting strong, we require that all degree-seeking students complete an online New Student Orientation prior to entering Pellissippi State.  

Recommended New Student Campus Welcome

We recommend you attend an in-person New Student Welcome event. This will give you the chance to tour the campus, meet faculty and staff and learn more about campus resources in person.  

New Student Orientation for students entering summer 2022

We are eager to welcome you to Pellissippi State as you prepare for your summer classes! 

To access NSO, click the button above. Navigate to the “New Student Orientation” section and click “Start Orientation.” After you have signed up for NSO, watch for an email from your orientation leader in your Pellissippi State email. Your orientation leader is a current student who will be your guide through your New Student Welcome. Please be patient, as this may take anywhere from a few days to a week. 

Classes begin May 31!

Orientation for students entering fall 2022

We are eager to welcome you to Pellissippi State as you prepare for your fall classes! 

To register for NSO, click the button above. Navigate to the “New Student Orientation” section and click “Start Orientation.” After you have signed up for the fall 2022 NSO, you will receive an email when the module is open and you may complete your orientation. Check back soon for more information coming soon!

Classes begin August 22!
