First-time Students Virtual NSO Schedule

SDSU student on campus

My Virtual NSO Schedule

All scheduled virtual NSO content will take place using Zoom teleconferencing technology. Zoom links will be emailed to students' Jacks accounts.

Advising and Registration (students only) 

Students will be responsible for scheduling their own advising appointments through ConnectState, which is linked in MyState. Appointments may be scheduled for the day of your session or shortly thereafter. Watch your Jacks email about one week before your session to learn how to book your advising appointment.

A note for families: Advising appointments are intended for students. Outside of that, we welcome family members to join in on the information-gathering fun beginning at 8:30 a.m. on your student's scheduled date. Students, please be sure to share appropriate schedules and links with them prior to your session.

8:30-10:00 a.m. CST — Getting Started at SDState (Academic College Meetings)

No live Virtual NSO content is scheduled for this hour. We encourage you to grab a bite to eat, and use this time to prepare for the afternoon. The best way to do that is to check out the videos in the Virtual Resource Folder, especially those related to Housing, Dining, Wellness, Business Services, Financial Aid, and Cashiers Office.

Campus offices will host drop-in style Zoom rooms to answer questions.
