New Student Orientation

As a first-year or transfer student, you’ll attend a two-day New Student Orientation, getting you ready to become part of our vibrant Wildcat community. During NSO, you’ll take an ACU 101 course that serves as your “everything ACU” guide. It includes opportunities to meet your future classmates, connect with your academic advisors, finalize payment plans, explore campus resources, and so much more. You will need to complete NSO by move-in.
