Main Content Start


In light of the recent situation regarding COVID-19, freshmen orientation will be held online. Enrollment advisors are connecting with new applicants daily. 

Please refer to your email as all NWACC applicants have received an individual email from their enrollment advisor within 72 hours of being admitted to the college.


  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.

  3. Self enroll in the Freshmen Online Orientation. Use your NWACC username and password to access the course. If you have trouble accessing your account, contact the IT Help Desk at 479-619-4357 to activate or reset your password or activate your account.
