There are a few things you’ll need to do before your orientation program, in order to be ready for your NSO academic advising and course registration appointment. You must complete required placement exams, as well as any optional exams you choose to take, and get started on your NSO Canvas modules.
Get ready for advising and registration
NSO Canvas modules
Shortly after making your NSO reservation, you will be invited to your NSO Canvas site. You must complete all the modules prior to your orientation program as it affects your academic advising and course registration. In order to complete the correct module, confirm your NSO advising unit indicated on your NSO confirmation page within the Orientation Portal.
We want every student to be successful at IU, so we require all components—even if you’ve already taken college classes or are transferring from another college.
Be sure to look for the section in the NSO Canvas site where you can explore and learn about campus resources available to you.
To access your Canvas modules
To access your Canvas modules, you will need to do the following:
- Set up your IU computing accounts.
- Set up your Two-Step Login (DUO) on your own device that you'll have at NSO.
- Check your IU email. This is where you’ll be notified once you are invited to the NSO Canvas site.
