Orientation Exemption Criteria

Because orientation sets the stage for student success, all new students must participate in the New Student Orientation (NSO) activities/checkpoints, unless you meet any of the exemption criteria below.

  • You already have a BA or a BS degree
  • You are admitted to the Accelerated Second Degree Nursing Program
  • You are admitted to an Evening Degree Completion Program
  • You are admitted from the two-year Michigan State University Agricultural Technology Approved Program

If you meet one (or more) of these exemption criteria and have been notified to participate in NSO, please contact the NSO office directly and we can assist!
