New Student Orientation

Your final step is to participate in the New Student Orientation (NSO101) class. NSO101 provides an overview of Rio Salado College including policies and procedures, student services, tips for academic success, and introduces RioLearn, our online learning system.

  • If you have never taken a college class before, you will be automatically enrolled in NSO101.
  • NSO101 will be available in RioLearn the Monday after you register for your first class.
  • You will have 4 weeks to complete NSO101.
  • The class will take approximately 2 hours.
