new student orientation (nso)

New Student Orientation (NSO) programs are offered during the summer to incoming freshman, transfer, international, and returning students. Students admitted to the University will attend a NSO program where they will discover the various opportunities student life has to offer, learn about resources that will help them towards graduation, work with advisors and student leaders, and register for courses.  Students must be admitted to the University and submit their intent to enroll prior to registering for New Student Orientation. New Student Orientation is a mandatory enrollment requirement for all incoming students. Admitted students who do not attend NSO are not eligible to enroll for the term in which they applied.
