New Student Orientation

The mission of the Office of New Student Orientation is to assist newly entering students in their transition to the University.  Through a collaborative, empowering, and comprehensive institutional effort, students and parents can holistically address academic, financial, and social needs while preparing for enrollment. It is designed for all incoming first year and transfer students to be introduced Norfolk State University, and to provide students and their families the opportunity to learn more about academic support services, student development initiatives, and technology tools for academic success.

All new and transfer students are expected to participate in and complete New Student Orientation prior to enrollment.  Our goal is to facilitate a seamless transition to Norfolk State University, so that you immediately acclimate and become a part of the Spartan family!
