After you have scheduled your NSO – You Belong Session, make sure you have your picture taken for your Student ID. You can send a non-filtered selfie to admissions@wiregrass.edu – be sure to include your full name and student ID number in the email. Also, complete the Parking Permit Application if you plan on coming to campus at any time during the semester. If you still need to be advised and registered, you can make your ARC Academic Advising appointment in Navigate. We’ll see you soon!

NSO is required for all new students and students who have sat out for two years. Students who do not complete orientation will have a hold placed on their record and will be unable to register for the upcoming term.
