New Student Orientation

The orientation program prepares students for the transition to life at the University of Nevada, Reno. During orientation, students meet with academic representatives and current students, learn about student resources and more. Orientation sessions are offered twice yearly—in January (for students starting in the Spring semester) and in August (for students starting in the Fall semester). Space is limited in each session, so it is important to register as early as possible.
