Orientation and Campus Tours

The mission of Orientation and Campus Tours is to provide quality programming, support services, and resources to facilitate a seamless transition for first-time-in-college and transfer students. Through specifically designed events and communication, Orientation and Campus Tours promotes student development, persistence, and academic success.

The Orientation and Campus Tours office plans and coordinates mandatory campus and online New Student Orientation (NSO) before each fall, spring, and summer term. The purpose of NSO is to foster student success, establish social and academic connections, introduce College resources, and engage students in the San Jacinto College culture in a fun, supportive environment.

After admission, the College requires students to register for NSO through the College's Secure Online System (SOS).

NSO sessions offer an opportunity for incoming students to ask questions, tour the campus, and meet faculty, staff, and students.
