Hello new matador! We are currently in the process of finalizing your 2021 New Student Orientation experience. Please, refer back to this website in April to get all the details. To see the NSO Live! schedule please select "NSO Live! Dates" tab.
The New Student Orientation (NSO) experience for all new Transfer Students will occur over the summer leading up till the Fall semester. All new students will partake in the following:
NSO Online (required) - Done at your own pace, the NSO Online platform is a series of educational modules that cover a range of topics all students should know prior to attending CSUN.
NSO Live! (Optional) - Through Zoom, students will be placed into small groups and assigned NSO Leaders who will bring you though a 4 hour program. The topics covered include Student Involvement & Belonging and Academic Success among other things. This is a more personalized experience and serve to help answer any questions still lingering prior to the start of the semester.
NSO Resources and Services Fair - Offered at the end of July, Resources and Service departments throughout the campus will be ready to engage with students and answer questions.
Registration will begin around mid/late June. All new students will receive emails and postcards signaling they can begin the NSO registration process.
We are still refining the specifics of this year's programming; however, the drop tabs below will continue to be updated with the latest information.
