New Student Orientation
All students new to The University of Akron will attend a New Student Orientation (NSO). Directly admitted students to the College of Health Professions (CHP) will be brought to the College Building for their Academic Advisement session. The advisers in the CHP Student Success Center will present college and program information as well as assist the students in preparing their schedule for the coming term.
Students admitted through other advising units on campus will receive their advisement through that department.
Students who are NOT required to attend NSO (former UA students, post-secondary students and postbaccalaureate students) will be instructed to contact directly the Student Success Center to set up an appointment with the appropriate pre-major adviser for their intended major as early as possible. Individual advisement appointments will be set once the student has been fully admitted.
Every BSN option offers a detailed orientation for students beginning the nursing curriculum. Students entering the major will receive notice of when their orientation will take place. The only exception to this rule is for the LPNs. Their orientation is woven through the first nursing course they take once prerequisites are completed: Transition to Baccalaureate Nursing for LPNs (8200:216).
