At orientation, you will have the opportunity to become better acquainted with the Honors College staff, as well as complete your fall course schedule! If you haven't already done so, register at the University web site at this link: NSO
Orientation days for incoming Honors College students are scheduled for Wednesdays, May-July. When you contact the Office of New Student Orientation, you will be directed to reserve an orientation time on one of those days. In general, the earlier you attend, the easier it is to register for Fall semester classes.
