Welcome to the University of Memphis!

New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed to help you and your parents make a smooth transition into college life at the University of Memphis. Your orientation program will include informative presentations from administrators and faculty members, small group discussions, academic advising and course registration. Orientation will afford you many opportunities to meet other incoming students and to interact with our Orientation Guides (OGs) who, as current students, can give you first-hand information about the UofM based on their experiences.

Be sure to visit our FAQ and Prepare for Orientation pages to learn more about how to get ready for New Student Orientation. Freshmen, take a look at Freshman Orientation for NSO dates and details!

If you did not attend a New Student Orientation session this summer, we are offering a LAST CALL NSO on August 20, 2019. Sign up at the link below to reserve your spot. This orientation session will not include academic advising, so students will need to contact the Academic Counseling Center to schedule their courses before the fee payment deadline of August 20. Contact acc@memphis.edu or 901-678-2062 to get in touch with an academic advisor.
