Student Engagement

First Year Orientation

We are looking forward to your arrival. The purpose of this website is to provide you with important information about the NSO program for new students, which will run from mid-June until late August.

All new students, including freshmen, transfer and international students are required to participate in this program.

During NSO, you will take part in a number of activities with other entering students. You will be meeting with Academic Advisors and receive your class schedule. This website provides you with a preview of the program; however, you will receive a more complete, updated schedule of events during NSO check-in.

In order to confirm your place in the NSO program and provide an accurate count for meals, please complete the registration in WebAdvisor as early as possible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at (215) 951-2634. We look forward to meeting you and we welcome you to the Jefferson East Falls Campus community.
