College 101/New Student Orientation Policy


First Year Experience (NCTC 1001), previously known as College 101/New Student Orientation, is required of all first-time NCTC students, including former Dual Credit and Early Admission students. The goal of the First Year Experience course is to equip new students with information about college-level expectations, and knowledge of the NCTC resources which can help them have a more successful college experience. First-time college students are required to enroll in and complete NCTC 1001 during their first year of enrollment prior to completing 15 credit hours.

Transfer students are required to complete an online Transfer Orientation through the MyNCTC student portal prior to the official date of record of their first semester of enrollment at NCTC.
