New Student Orientation
January 13-15, 2015
|New Student Orientation (required for all students)
||January 15-16, 2015
New Student Orientation (NSO) is a required program for all students enrolling the first time. This includes freshmen, transfer, visiting, international, and honors students. During NSO, you will participate in welcome week activities; meet academic advisors, faculty, and administrators; and become familiar with campus culture and services. All freshmen, transfer, and international students must take placement tests in English and mathematics prior to NSO. These tests are required as the scores on the tests help your academic advisor schedule appropriate classes for your first semester.
All NSO participants pay a non-refundable $50 fee which covers program materials and activities.
