COVID-19: News and Campus Updates

New Student Orientation

The University of Northern Colorado provides entering students with a comprehensive New Student Orientation (NSO) program designed to ease the transition from high school to college or from another institution to UNC. During NSO, you will be connected with the UNC community that will foster new friendships and the resources that will support you through your college career! Attending Orientation is required for all incoming students. We also strongly encourage you to watch the short Pre-Orientation videos to make your transition to UNC successful. After you have confirmed you're coming to UNC (by submitting your decision form), you will be able to sign-up for Orientation and watch the Pre-Orientation videos.

UNC's New Student Orientation and New Student Days will be in-person for all students starting Spring 2022.



Watch your BearMail closely for the email invite to sign-up for Orientation once we open registration! You'll need to submit your decision form (via your Admissions Portal) before you can sign-up. You will also be able to sign-up for Orientation and watch the Pre-Orientation videos in your Admissions Portal at any point.

As a new UNC Bear, you are now invited to attend New Student Days. New Student Days are designed to help first-year and transfer students transition both academically and socially to life at UNC. You will learn about various campus resources, gain an understanding of UNC’s academic expectations, and participate in social events including your very first UNC basketball game and a movie night on campus. During New Student Days, you are sure to have a great time meeting fellow Bears and getting prepared for the start of classes.
