NSO Preparation Packet

In addition to the online reservation confirmation, students attending summer NSO will receive a preparation packet approximately 2-3 weeks before their program date. Students attending orientation at other times will receive the program information they need electronically 10 days prior to their orientation date.

Read these materials carefully and share them with your family members, because they include important information like what to expect, what to bring, and where to park. Your packet will also contain information about academic materials and other items to complete before orientation.

NSO Handbook

At orientation, we provide students and parents/family with an NSO Handbook. This handbook serves as a tool for references and connections throughout your orientation experience.

If you would like a digital version of the NSO Handbook, please contact us at
