New Student Orientation

Welcome to the Shoreline Community College family!

New Student Orientation, or NSO, is designed to introduce you to what it means to be a student at Shoreline and help you be successful during your time here.

While the College operates remotely, NSO will be held online via Canvas. Canvas is available 24/7 so you can work through the course at your own pace.

Virtual, live NSO sessions will be offered before the start of Summer Quarter 2022. More information will be available here beginning in June.
