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

  • Attendance at a complete NSO session is mandatory for all newly admitted students. Partial attendance is not allowed.
  • Students MUST be registered for a specific NSO date. Walk-ins are absolutely not permitted!
  • 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 and students should plan to be on campus until 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. 
  • The cost for NSO is $50 per first-year student.
  • Personal guests and friends are not allowed to attend New Student Orientation.
  • 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 $50 per person. 

Getting ready for NSO:

Information for deferred students:

  • If you were previously accepted to the U and have deferred your admission for a mission, military service, or medical reasons, you are still required to attend NSO before starting classes.
  • Students who cannot attend the session dates listed above can contact our office for more information.
  • 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.
  • The Center for New Student & Family Programs is committed to making sure all students have a successful transition to the U!
  • During Welcome Week, a special reception for returning students will be held in partnership with the LDS Institute to help students form connections and feel supported starting the fall semester at the U.
