Make Your Reservation to Attend
After accepting your offer to Penn State and completing the ALEKS Math Assessment, you will be invited via email to make your reservation for New Student Orientation. You will not be eligible to access our Penn State Orientation Reservation System until you receive this email from our office with the subject "Make Your Reservation for NSO".
This email will come directly to you at the personal email you provided on your application to Penn State. You will need your Penn State Access Account to make a reservation for NSO.
If you require any special accommodations during NSO, you will have the opportunity to provide us with this information along with your reservation.
NSO programs will be available to you based your Penn State campus, semester of entry, and college of admission. After selecting your preferred NSO program, you can elect to add information for any parents or family members ("Guests") who may be attending NSO with you. By providing us with their contact information, they will also receive a confirmation of your selected NSO program.
Review your reservation. Be sure to click "Submit" at the top or bottom of the page to reserve your seat at NSO. Your reservation is not guaranteed until you click "Submit".
You and your guests should receive a confirmation email to the email address you entered with your reservation.
Return to the reservation system at any time to adjust the information you provided or to change your NSO program (if permitted by your campus).
Welcome to Penn State!
