New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation (NSO) is a required, overnight two-day program for all new freshmen. All students are required to stay overnight the first night of their NSO and will check out on the second (and final) day of their conference.
Any student seeking to change their major must do so at least 10 business days prior to their New Student Orientation. In order to successfully change into a new major, students must meet admissions requirements for specific majors.
Complete orientation participation is required for all new degree-seeking undergraduate students prior to academic advising and course registration. Orientation sessions always occur on weekdays because the offices, faculty/staff members, academic advisors and other programs, resources and services required to assist students and family members with their college transition are not available on the weekends.
Once a new student as been admitted and has decided that UH is the institution they plan to attend, they should register/pay for their orientation session via the myUHportal. Visit NSO Dates page for information on how to register for a NSO.
At New Student Orientation, you will see, learn and do everything you will need before the first day of classes! Browse through this website and see what Orientation is all about.
Summer/Fall 2013 registration will be available February 25, 2013.
