To reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19, Henry Ford College has made significant operational changes. Beginning March 23, HFC will not offer New Student Orientation in person. All new students will complete orientation online. See "Online New Student Orientation" below for details.

Students in a non-degree seeking program, including guest students do not need to complete orientation prior to registering for classes.

Some students may qualify for an exemption from the orientation requirement needed to register for classes. To find out if you qualify, please go to our NSO Exemption page.

To request a sign language interpreter for an in-person NSO-SOAR session, please be sure to contact at least two weeks prior to the date of the session you registered for.

Have more questions about Orientation? See our Orientation FAQs or contact the Office of Orientation & New Student Engagement (ONSE);, 313-845-9674.
