What is New Student Orientation?

You can think of it as the final piece of the puzzle to becoming a Highlander! New Student Orientation, or NSO, is mandatory for all new incoming students. Fall 2020  NSO events will take place online, which means you can complete NSO as soon as you are ready!

New Freshmen, Transfer, and prior-dual enrolled students must complete FORGE Online Orientation in order to receive a schedule.
