New Student Enrollment

New Student Enrollment (NSE) is a required orientation day for all new freshmen where you will meet with an advisor, register for classes, connect with classmates, and have all your questions answered. You will feel welcomed, supported, and confident for a successful start as a Loper. Parents or guardians are encouraged to attend with you and will have their own sessions and opportunities to ask questions.
