Alternative NSO

Main Content

At this time, all of our New Student Orientation (NSO) events are complete. However, if you did not attend it’s not too late! We have two options for you to complete New Student Orientation, which is required for new first year students and strongly recommended for transfer students.

Alternative Orientation

Alternative Orientation is a phone/web-based program providing the key information you need for a successful start to your academic career at SIU. Contact New Student Programs to schedule a time, and a New Student Orientation staff member will do a one-on-one webinar-style orientation with you.

Make-up New Student Orientation

New Student Programs will provide a make-up New Student Orientation session on Friday, August 18, 2017, from 10am-noon in Morris Library. Check-in will begin at 9 am in the main lobby of Morris Library.The make-up New Student Orientation will be followed by lunch (meal card provided), and participants are encouraged to attend Success Day workshops and Watermelon Fest in the afternoon. These events are part of Saluki Startup and will help your transition to campus.
