About New Student Orientation

All newly admitted students and students with 24 or fewer college credits (post high school graduation) are required to participate in Finlandia University's New Student Orientation (NSO) program and enroll in the one-credit course, Sisu Seminar - UNS 115.

New students with 25 or more college credits (post high school graduation) are expected to attend the first day of NSO - Monday, August 19, 2013. New students with 24 or fewer college credits (post-high school graduation) are expected to attend the entire NSO week.

The orientation program gives students the opportunity to learn about academic programs and university services, meet faculty, staff, and current students, and participate in activities designed to acquaint new students with the campus and its community. The course introduces students to the goals of a university education, the skills needed for university success, and the programs, services, and facilities available.
