New Student Orientation

Our Virtual NSO experience will be self-paced and includes information related to both academic resources, and engagement opportunities.

The deadline to complete the virtual NSO is January 3. This mandatory orientation takes approximately 30 minutes to complete entirely. Students are expected to complete all of the content fully in order to receive their NSO and their Title IX Certificates of Completion.

Certificates of completion will need to be uploaded onto the JAGx Blackboard community once the semester begins.
