New Student Orientation (NSO)

Whether it’s your first time in college, you’re transferring, or you’re returning to the Alamo Colleges District after more than one year away, attending NSO will help you be successful at Palo Alto College. This mandatory session includes information about campus resources, a campus tour, and a session with your assigned academic advisor to plan and register for your first semester of classes.
