Orientation will help you become familiar with NIU, what it means to be a Huskie and meet other new students. You'll learn about student resources and how to get involved on campus. You'll also meet with your academic advisor and register for classes.
You'll be allowed to attend only the orientation programs that are available to you via the MyNIU system. Advising for some majors and colleges is not available for all programs. Orientation programs do fill quickly and space is limited—so register today! Please note, we do not have a waitlist for orientation programs.
If you've changed your major since you've applied to NIU, please make sure you fill out a change your major form. After you submit your form, you'll receive confirmation of this change within 48 hours.
