Welcome to Massasoit Community College!

Participation in New Student Orientation is a requirement for all new students to ensure a smooth transition to Massasoit.

  • WHY?
    New Student Orientation (NSO) introduces programs and services designed to foster academic, career and social development. The purpose of NSO is three-fold:

    • To Engage: We provide opportunities for new students to engage with peers, faculty and staff, which lays the foundation for future connections within the classroom and greater college community.
    • To Empower: We emphasize the institution’s role in fostering student empowerment as navigators of their own success.
    • To Equip: We introduce students to the tools and processes critical to course registration, program and career planning and college financing.
  • WHEN?
    Completing NSO at Massasoit is a two-step process that is completed after a student has been admitted to a degree or certificate program and after their course placement is complete.
