Welcome First Year Students!

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

Students starting at UMass Amherst during the Spring 2021 semester will complete their orientation online. We look forward to connecting with you soon!
