How to Register
You will register for NSO through your SDSU MyState account. This is the same portal you would have used to complete the housing application.
If you have not previously accessed MyState, please read the following information:
ACCESSING MYSTATE - You will need:
1. Your Jacks username
2. Your Jacks email password
NOTE: Both your username and how to get your password were emailed to you from the SDSU Admissions Office when you were admitted to the university. If you changed your password since receiving the email, please be sure to use your updated password to log in. If you have any issues accessing MyState, please reach out to the Support Desk at 605-688-6776.
AFTER SIGNING IN TO MYSTATE
1. Register for NSO by clicking on the Dashboard tab and finding the Forms section on the Dashboard. In the Forms section, find the New Student Orientation Registration Form, which is typically a featured form at the top of the Forms list.
2. Verify your major, select your date and complete the rest of the steps to finalize registration.
Once you've registered, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. Follow our social media posts to get yourself prepared to participate in your NSO session. Your final confirmation details will be sent via Jacks email a day or two prior to your session.
