New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed to help new students make the transition to Sinclair. By taking part in orientation, you will learn about completing the enrollment process, campus resources, support services, counseling, financial aid and much more. Small, interactive sessions are offered in the New Student Enrollment Center so you can get to know the staff and students who will aid in your success. Space is limited; make your appointment now!

Attend New Student Orientation:

Dayton Campus

Once you have completed the placement test on the Dayton Campus, staff in the New Student Enrollment Center will schedule all new students for this mandatory session. Students may also make a New Student Orientation appointment, or may reschedule, by calling the New Student Enrollment Center at 937-512-3334.

Regional Centers

New Student Orientation is also offered at Sinclair in Eaton, Englewood, Huber Heights, and Mason.


In addition to in-person sessions, you are now able to learn about the registration process, campus resources, support services, counseling, financial aid and much more from the comfort of your own home!

Students: You must log in with your my.sinclair username and password and complete all activities and assessments for your orientation session to be submitted and recorded. To mirror the in-person orientation experience, your online orientation must be completed in one session. If you log out before submitting or are logged out due to inactivity or technical issues, your progress will not be saved and you must start the orientation again from the beginning.
