Preparing for Orientation
The New Student Orientation (NSO) experience will be completed virtually with an in-person Orientation program being offered prior to the beginning of the semester. Students will complete a series of five checkpoints as they make their way through the Orientation experience. Successful completion of NSO requires students to complete all five checkpoints, so be sure to view the first-year student NSO checklist to learn more about what is required throughout the NSO process.
All important information, next steps, and deadlines for NSO experiences will be shared through a series of bi-weekly e-newsletters, so be sure to check your email frequently. Orientation sets the foundation for student success, so all new students must participate in a NSO experience, unless you meet specific exemption criteria.
Note: If you do not complete NSO, MSU reserves the right to revoke your admission.
