New Student Orientation

Welcome to Quincy College. Your journey starts here!

New Student Orientation

At Quincy College NSO you will find professionals ready to assist you, services to help you along the way, and a community of learners.

Welcome New Students

We look forward to welcoming all new students to the Quincy College community as part of the New Student Orientation (NSO) program. We are excited to offer both in-person and live virtual orientation program sessions to give students an idea of what to expect as they begin their education at Quincy College.

At our New Student Orientation, you’ll be introduced to all that Quincy College has to offer. Learn about support services and extracurricular activities, meet faculty and staff — and other incoming students like you! It’s a great opportunity to familiarize yourself with the campus, ask questions, finalize your fall class schedule, or meet with a Financial Aid counselor.

We look forward to welcoming you this fall and encourage you to contact us with any questions by email studentlife@quincycollege.edu.
