Winter NSO

Through participation in your online orientation, you’ll meet the people and learn about the requirements and resources that will help you make decisions about your first semester as a UMass Amherst student.

During orientation you will:

  • Make connections with classmates, student leaders, academic advisors, and other university staff members.

  • Learn to use the resources available to students.

  • Take part in a variety of presentations and activities to help you better understand

    • academic expectations for the university, your college, and your major to guide you on the path to graduation;

    • opportunities for engagement in the university community to create a balanced experience; and

    • the values, community standards, and responsibilities that keep our university safe, healthy, and welcoming for all.

Use the student checklist to guide you through this process.
