New Student Orientation Sign-Up
Registration is now open for New Student Orientation (NSO) sessions! This year, we are doing things a bit differently as NSO will be held in two parts, virtually and on-campus.
Part 1 of orientation will take place during July/early August and will be hosted through Kean’s Blackboard portal, the online system that professors will utilize for their academic courses. This will allow students to learn this valuable program with the guidance and help of the orientation staff.
Part 1 will require students to be virtually present for dynamic group activities with their peers and orientation leaders as well as attending essential presentations about vital campus resources. Virtual check-in for each session starts at 9:30 a.m. with the virtual program beginning at 10 a.m. A more detailed schedule of the day will be emailed to students 1-2 days prior to the session start date.

All scheduled Part 1 sessions of New Student Orientation have passed. Additional information will be posted by Wednesday, August 12, 2020, to provide additional instructions for students that were not able to participate in the previous New Student Orientation Part 1 sessions.
The check-in process for New Student Orientation Part 2 will be updated by August 12, 2020 to better align with current social distancing requirements at the Kean University Reopening Plans.
