All students new to The University of Akron will attend a New Student Orientation (NSO). Students who are directly admitted to the College of Health Professions will be brought to the College for their Academic Advisement session. The advisers in the Student Success Center will present college and program information as well as assist the students in preparing their schedule for the coming term.

Former UA students and postbaccalaureate students are NOT required to attend NSO.  These students will be instructed to contact directly the appropriate adviser for their intended major as early as possible. Individual advisement appointments will be set once the student has been fully admitted.
