Welcome to the Huskie Family!
Congratulations on being admitted to NIU! Choosing where you go to college is a life-changing decision, and we're confident that NIU is the right school for you. Follow these important steps to make your transition to NIU an easy one.
You’re required to register for online orientation at MyNIU. Once registered, you’ll have access to video and chat sessions, as well as live virtual presentations. Explore!
Please plan to complete our Pre-Orientation Program (POP) at least two weeks before orientation. What’s POP? It's an online, self-guided module introducing many of the topics you’ll learn about during your orientation.
Within seven days leading up to your registered orientation date, keep an eye out for an email with information about your advising appointment time. During your scheduled advising appointment, you’ll meet virtually one-on-one with your advisor, who will help you plan your first semester and prepare to register for classes.
Enjoy your virtual orientation experience! You’ll hear about everything NIU has to offer and participate in a live Huskie to Huskie chat with NIU’s student Orientation Leaders and other new Huskies like you. Expect an invitation in your student email to join this Microsoft Teams chat within the three days leading up to your registered date.
