My Virtual New Student Orientation

Welcome, New Jacks!

For the safety of our students, staff and faculty, NSO will be a virtual process for fall 2021. We are planning a positive experience for our newest Jackrabbits. Register for the session that best fits your summer schedule and allows for your availability during business hours that day (roughly 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Central).  


(You will be directed to the MyState portal. Please log in to register for NSO. The form can be found under the Forms section on the Dashboard.)

Session sizes are limited and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Please see MyState for currently available sessions.
