Registering for Orientation

You might not be new to college, but you will be new to NIU! That's why we'll give you the best start possible with our orientation program. You can register for orientation after you’ve confirmed your intent to enroll and paid your enrollment fee. Please read our transfer FAQ before you register.

How to register:

  1. Log in to MyNIU and click on Student Center.
  2. Click on the Undergraduate Admissions tile.
  3. Confirm your Intent to Enroll.
  4. Pay the nonrefundable Enrollment Fee.
  5. Look for an orientation registration email in your NIU student email inbox.
  6. Select the type of orientation program you would like to attend.
  7. Choose your orientation date.

Once you register, we'll send you an email within 48 hours to confirm your reservation and provide details about next steps.

Family Member Orientation

We understand you might have family members who want to know more about your transition to NIU. That's why they'll have the opportunity to complete an online family orientation. If you will be attending orientation on-campus, you can register your guests when you select your orientation date. Please note that you'll attend the academic advising portion of orientation on your own.
