New Student Orientation (NSO) is a mandatory program for all first-time freshmen that will provide you with everything you need to know about being a student at the UofM. During your NSO session you will meet other students, stay overnight in a residence hall, tour the campus, learn about getting involved, and other essential information for new students.
One of the most important services at NSO is meeting your advisor and registering for your classes. You are assigned an advisor based on your intended major . . . but if that has changed, just let the Orientation staff know when you check-in.
During your advising appointment you will:
- Review AP scores, dual enrollment credits, and ACT/SAT results
- Evaluate ALEKS placement
- Discuss requirements for your intended major(s)
- Outline career options and/or graduate school plans
- Choose your courses for the fall semester
Remember, your advisor is a great resource so be sure to ask any questions you may have about declaring your major, getting started at UofM, being a successful student, or ways to get involved. We are here to help and so excited you chose the University of Memphis!
