New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation

The Office of New Student Orientation strives to aid new students in their transition to the University. We work together with various departments to offer academic, financial, and social support to students and their families in their preparation for enrollment. Our program is tailored to introduce incoming first-year and transfer students to Norfolk State University, and equip them with the knowledge of academic support services, student development initiatives, and technology tools for academic achievement.

All new first-year and transfer students are required to participate in and complete New Student Orientation prior to enrollment. If you have any further questions or concerns pertaining to New Student Orientation, please email us at
