    Welcome to CSUN!

New Student Orientation


In the interest of everyone's well-being and consistent with the goal of reducing opportunities for exposure to COVID-19, all in-person events offered through the Office of Student Involvement & Development are cancelled or postponed through the spring semester. 

The office will continue to offer services related to New Student Orientation (NSO) and we will be notifying all newly admitted students as to how these programs will take place as information becomes available to us. NSO notifications will primarily be communicated through CSUN email, and online at the NSO website. 

You can find more information about COVID-19 campus planning, preparedness and prevention at csun.edu/COVID-19.

NSO Goal: To support the continuous process of integrating new students into the academic, cultural and social context of CSUN.  In addition to NSO, other programming efforts produced through the Office of Student Involvement and Development (OSID) include:
