New Student Orientation (NSO) is a required program for all new freshmen. Students with Summer and Fall admit terms are required to stay overnight the first night of their NSO and will check out on the second (and final) day of their conference. Students attending an August, make-up NSO, will not have the option to stay overnight. There is no overnight housing option for Spring NSO sessions as our current students are living in the residence halls we use during the summer. Students will enroll in courses during their NSO.
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 myUH portal. 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.
Spring 2014 registration will be available October 8, 2013.
