Atascocita Center New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) is an overview of Lone Star College, important policies and procedures, as well as resources to help students succeed. LSC-Atascocita Center NSO gives incoming freshman an opportunity to become familiar with the Center and to learn about many of the resources that are available to ensure that students are successful in attaining their educational goals. The session is required for all First Time in College students (FTIC). 

  • You are considered FTIC if you have never taken a for-credit college course SINCE graduating from high school.
  • If you previously took college credit while enrolled in high school, you are still considered FTIC.
  • You cannot register for classes until you have completed New Student Orientation

FTIC students have the option to complete NSO either face-to-face (On-Campus) or virtually (NSO Live). New Student Orientation sessions are FREE, but students are REQUIRED to register in advance through your Lone Star student account to ensure a spot in our sessions.  Remember that if you plan to register for classes during NSO, you must have your bacterial meningitis requirement completed along with placement testing on your New Student Checklist in my.LoneStar.edu.
