New Student Orientation at University Park

Congratulations on your admission to Penn State University Park!

All incoming first-year students must attend New Student Orientation prior to starting classes at University Park. NSO is a two-day program that introduces students to life on campus, in the classroom, and in State College. Parents and family members are welcome to attend a concurrent program during their student's NSO.

If you're a student starting at Penn State in summer/fall 2019, information about your NSO will be available in March 2019.
