Upcoming Family Orientation Programs

Welcome to the MSU Family! Soon your student will be participating in New Student Orientation (NSO)! Michigan State University is committed to helping your student achieve their goals. We understand the important role you have played in preparing your student for their higher education. MSU recognizes the importance of all of us working together to encourage your student’s success. We are curating opportunities for you to connect with campus experts, other families and caregivers, and the NSO team as we near the beginning of the semester.

Family and Supporter New Student Orientation Experience

Families and supporters for all students starting Spring (January) 2023 are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities we offer. We will be sending all students, families, and supporters a series of e-newsletters to stay connected with general information, next steps, and deadlines as we approach the first day of classes.

If you are a family or supporter of a new international Spartan student, we recommend connecting with the Office for International Students and Scholars and their information and opportunities for international families.

If you or your student has any questions about the New Student Orientation experience, please contact the NSO Office at nso@msu.edu or 517-355-8490. We look forward to helping you and your student through their transition into the MSU community.
