New Student Orientation


Congratulations Seahawk!

As of January 10, 2020, all new Broward College students must complete our new online orientation.

In order to access the orientation, you will need to have completed an online application to the college. If you have not already applied, please submit an application. The online orientation is designed to answer all your questions and is available for you to access at any time.  Let's get started on your online orientation and set you up for an Advising & Registration (A&R) session! You will need to implement the following steps:


Select one of these options at the Member Profile:

Then select your home BC Campus.


Review and complete each module of the orientation. At the "Next Steps" module, select your student type:

After you carefully read through the checklist of your student type, skip the other checklists until you get to the NSO test. Once you take the test and pass it, you will find options based on your student type on how to register for classes.

Note: you must pass the test with a score of 80 before you can see the options to register for classes.


Have you taken the SAT or ACT? If so, submit your scores. If not, or if you did not meet minimum requirements, you'll need to take the PERT test before you are able to register for orientation.

Read information about the PERT and testing hours.When you take the PERT or provide your eligible SAT and/or ACT scores, you will be able to register for orientation. You may also be exempt from placement testing. Check out how we determine this by clicking on exempt or not exempt.

Are you a degree-seeking student whose native or official language is not English? If so, you may be an EAP student. EAP students must take the LOEP test prior to registering for an A&R session. You can schedule a LOEP test appointment here.

You'll use your BC email address and the password you created at the end of your application to log in. You can start your orientation now then come back to it at any time to complete it.
