New Student Orientation

Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts and Hawthorn Building

New Student Orientation (NSO), conducted by Penn State's Division of Undergraduate Studies (DUS), assists first-year students in evaluating their educational plans by providing a comprehensive program of testing and individualized educational planning and academic advising prior to initial registration. This program is the first stage of academic advising and provides students with an understanding of their scholastic preparation, academic abilities, educational and professional interests, and introduces them to Penn State's academic structure and degree programs.
