Welcome First Year Students!

One of the first things you have to do before your first semester as a UMass Amherst student is reigster for your New Students Orientation (NSO).  NSO is a required program for all incoming students. It is designed to help you make a smooth transition from high school to the university. 

If you are entering the university in the fall, you will participate in our Summer NSO and fall transition programming. If you are entering in the spring, register for Winter NSO. We look forward to connecting with you soon!
