New Student Orientation

Once you've been admitted as a student at NWACC, you'll be required to complete the online New Student Orientation to become acquainted with the college's services, resources and programs, and meet with an advisor and register for courses. 

Please refer to your email as all NWACC correspondence including course recommendations from the Enrollment Services Office will be sent to that email.

Follow these steps to get ready for orientation. 


  1. Make sure you have submitted an admissions application and you are able to log into your MyNWACC. If you are having trouble logging in, contact the IT Help Desk at 479-619-4376.

  2. It is highly recommended that you have taken a Placement Exam (ACT or Accuplacer) and submitted those scores. If you are unable to provide test scores, you are still able to complete the online orientation and move forward with the next steps under the guidance of an enrollment advisor.
