New Student Orientation (NSO)
Come get to know campus! NSO activities range from spiritual and academic, to the informal and out-and-out fun that is a fantastic part of campus life. Many of these events are organized around Y Groups, small groups led by upperclassmen where you can ask questions and get to know other new students.
New Student Orientation
BYU New Student Orientation includes three important parts:
1. Online Orientation Modules - ALL NEW! BYU has developed an orientation learning module for all incoming students! Complete the 90 minutes of interactive content to kick-start your BYU success. We strongly recommend completing this before you register for classes. Click HERE to start now!
2. Orientation Event - Join us for a live welcome event to get to know other students, the BYU legacy, and additional resources to help you gear up for success at BYU. The event is what we typically refer to as New Student Orientation and is always full of fun, friends, swag/prizes, and more. Scroll down to view more details about the orientation event for your first term/semester at BYU.
3. Peer Mentors - Your peer mentor is here to help you fulfill your potential at BYU! They will help guide you through your first year from the time you are admitted through the end of your first semester. Click HERE to learn who your mentor is.
We are pleased to announce that all freshmen that started school spring, summer, or fall 2021 are invited to attend the Fall 2021 NSO in person.
