New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) is here and we are excited to welcome you to the Matador Family! The goal of the NSO program is to support the continuous process of integrating new students into the academic, cultural and social context of CSUN. Although this year presents unique challenges in providing our traditional orientation experience, our first commitment is to the health and safety of our students. This has led to the creation a fully virtual orientation experience to prepare for a successful transition to CSUN.

To better help you prepare for your orientation experience, we encourage you to review the information on the page that best describes how you will be entering the University. The Freshmen, Transfer, and International pages will detail what you can expect from your orientation, how to register, and share answers to the most frequently asked questions.

After you have familiarized yourself with the NSO process, feel free to learn more about the other program efforts offered through the office of Student Involvement and Development (OSID). These programs include:
