Congratulations — you’ve registered for New Student Orientation! Now what? Make sure you’ve completed the following items so you are prepared for your NSO program.
1) Check your MIX email account regularly
2) Check your placement
Completing the correct math and chemistry course(s) your freshman year can impact your entire college experience. Prior to attending New Student Orientation, check the math and chemistry requirements for your major. If you need to take the ALEKS math and chemistry placement assessment, please plan to do so the afternoon of your orientation session.
3) Choose a dining plan
All students living in WVU residence halls are required to have a dining plan, and the deadline to choose a Dining Plan is June 30, 2017. After this deadline, students who have not chosen a plan will be automatically assigned the Blue Plan. If you are commuting, you have the option of purchasing a non-resident plan.
4) Grant access to Parent/Guest Portal
5) Set up accommodations
Students with a 504, individualized education plan (IEP), or specific physical needs should contact the Office of Accessibility Services to obtain academic, housing or transportation accommodations. Please call 304-293-6700 to begin the process.
7) Get ready for NSO
Make sure you know where to go when you arrive on campus!
Attending the NSO One Day? You’ll park at the Coliseum.
Attending the NSO Overnight? You’ll be staying at Lincoln Hall.
Attending the NSO Overnight Basecamp? You’ll head to the Outdoor Education Center.
Overnight sessions have additional packing lists, but for your full day at NSO, you will want to wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers — the weather can be unpredictable!
