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!

- 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
