New Student Orientation

As you embark on your new journey as a Spartan, one step is to register to attend New Student Orientation.

New Student Orientation Sessions will be held virtually. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and safety for both the NSU community, as well as our new incoming students and their families.

NSU will send a notification of the next steps to your Spartan email account on how to access your online orientation modules.

Please note that class registration is a part of New Student Orientation and you will communicate with an advisor after completion of your New Student Orientation Online Modules. Feel free to contact our office for any questions or concerns.

Information regarding New Student Orientation can be reviewed at Please check the site periodically for new announcements and updates.
