Orientation Schedule

Summer 2020 New Student Orientation Dates

COVID-19 Orientation Update 
Norfolk State University is actively monitoring the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (termed “COVID-19”). Very rapidly, the virus has been detected in numerous countries including the United States.

At this time, there are confirmed cases in the State of Virginia. The University has moved to an online environment beginning March 16, 2020.

What does this mean for New Student Orientation?
Our office is keeping a close eye on this ever-changing situation. On April 21st, the university determined that the best course of action would be to move our summer orientation process online. This decision was not made lightly, but out of caution and safety for both the NSU community, as well as our new incoming students and their families.

During this time, we will be making a number of updates to our website, as well as sending out communications regarding what the change to the online orientation will be.  We encourage you to continue checking our site for updates.

While our physical office will remain closed for servicing students for the remainder of the semester, our staff will be readily available via email at nsuorientation@nsu.edu and by phone at (757) 823-8673 during business hours (8:00am - 5:00pm).
