New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation

The New Student Orientation (NSO) Freshmen Orientation Program is recommended for first-time college students (freshman). The program has been designed to prepare recent high school graduates for their first semester and provide them with the direction and resources that will support them throughout their first year at the UH Mānoa. NSO Transfer sessions are designed to prepare students who have already have a taste of college life but will be attending the UH Mānoa as a new student. The goal is to provide incoming transfers with the direction and resources that will support them throughout their first year at UHM.
