Things to know about Fall Semester New Student Orientation (NSO):

  • Attendance at a complete NSO session is required for all newly admitted students. Partial attendance is not allowed.
  • You cannot register for classes until you have attended a NSO session.
  • Fall Semester NSO includes an overnight stay in the residence halls, regardless of whether or not a student plans to live on campus.
  • Check-in for these programs begins at 8:00am on Day 1 in the Union Lobby and will conclude at least 3:00pm on Day 2. Out-of-state students should not book flights out of Salt Lake City before 4:00pm on Day 2. 
  • We love parents! Family members wishing to attend a program with their student must register for the corresponding Parent & Family Orientation. Students will be able to add familiy members or other guests on their NSO registration form. The cost for Parent & Family Orientation is $60 per person. 
  • Personal guests and friends are NOT allowed to attend New Student Orientation.
  • Students MUST be registered for a specific NSO date. Walk-ins are absolutely NOT permitted!
  • Registration closes 3 days before NSO or until session is filled.

  • Parents who would like to attend an orientation session in June or July are welcome to do so! Please contact our office for registration help.
