Registering for Orientation

You can register for orientation in MyNIU. Please read about our policies and fees before you register.

How to register:

  1. Log in to MyNIU and click on Student Center.
  2. Click on the Undergraduate Orientation tile.
  3. Choose your date.
  4. Pay the nonrefundable confirmation fee. This fee secures your spot at NIU and covers the cost of orientation.

After you register, we'll send you an email within 48 hours to confirm your payment and orientation date.

Family Member Registration

You can register family members for family orientation when you register. You can also add them after you register.

  1. Log in to MyNIU and click on Student Center.
  2. Click on the Undergraduate Orientation tile.
  3. Scroll down to Family Options.

Please note:

  • Family orientation is designed for parents and other adult family members. We do not recommend bringing young children to orientation.
  • There is no fee for family members to attend family orientation.
  • Family members will have the opportunity to meet with their student's college, though they will not attend the advising portion of orientation with their student.
