New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) is the kickoff for the USF First Year Experience (FYE)! During NSO, students will have the opportunity to engage with faculty, staff, student leaders, and their peers. New students will get to experience our community at USF, and they will be equipped to begin their college career on a solid foundation through participating in sessions/activities on learning, leadership, and service!

Whether you are a first-time freshman or a transfer student, we want to ensure that you are equipped with the information, resources, and relationships needed for a transformational college experience at USF! All new students are required to attend New Student Orientation. After you have been accepted to USF, please be sure to make your selection for one of our New Student Orientation dates because these spots fill up quickly! The deadline for completing your online registration for NSO is 1 week prior to each available date. The NSO online registration form can be found on My Cougar Connection.
