New Student Orientation at University Park

Congratulations on your admission to Penn State University Park!

New Student Orientation (NSO) at University Park is a two-day program aimed at providing you, and your family, with an introduction to life on campus, in the classroom, and in State College. All new students are expected to attend NSO. A companion Parent & Family program is available for any parents or family members that will be traveling to University Park with you for NSO. 

First-year students admitted to University Park for Summer/Fall 2016 will be able to make their reservation approximately one (1) week, after completing the ALEKS Math Assessment and Educational Planning Survey. 

Check out these helpful pages for additional information about NSO:

Many of our program activities will be in large auditoriums, and it will be necessary to walk some distance between campus locations. If you, or your parent or family member, anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the physical access provided, please visit our FAQ page for additional information. 

We look forward to seeing you soon at University Park!
