New Student Orientation

What is New Student Orientation?

New Student Orientation prepares new and transfer students for the upcoming school year. Consider NSO a welcome event! During this time, we welcome new and transfer students to campus, and help you get ready for a successful school year. You’ll be able to meet other new students, register for first semester of classes, and learn about all the resources available to help make your Coppin experience a successful one.

As a new student, you probably have a few questions. We’re here to help!

Yes, all first year and transfer students must attend. Students can register online.

No, you don't stay on campus during your NSO date.

Parents and family members can also attend. We know that starting college is often a family event. Orientation is a space for adult loved ones to share in the student experience, ask questions, and build a lasting connection to Coppin.

We discourage small children from attending. Orientation is for college students and their adult loved ones.

No, you don't need to pay tuition and fees to attend Orientation. Any student who has been accepted can attend. The University does not require payment of tuition and fees until a student has registered for classes.

There is no charge attend Orientation. Keep in mind, you may have other related expenses for travel and lodging regarding your trip to attend.

You may meet with several different staff and faculty during Orientation, but there is no guarantee you will meet with your specific advisor.

New Student Orientation is online until further notice because we are being overly cautious about changing Covid-19 conditions. The health and wellbeing of our students, faculty, staff, and guests is our top priority.
