Your NSO Experience

Here’s what to expect from NSO.

Step 1 - Online Program

Online Modules

Mandatory for students. Optional for guests.

When you register for your on-campus NSO date, you're also registering to be notified when the NSO modules open. These modules are mandatory and completing them is what allows you to meet with an adviser. They should take about 2 hours to finish and can be completed on your own time.

The online modules will be available May 10 and are required to be completed by June 10.

After you complete the online modules, the system will automatically let us know. We’ll email instructions for your next step.

Step 2 - Submit Student ID Photo

Submitting a Student ID Photo

Mandatory for students.

Say cheese and show us your best smile! After registering for NSO, review the Mountaineer Card (WVU student ID) photo submission details and submit your photo as soon as possible.

Your ID photo should be approved before you come to campus for your NSO date.

Advising Appointment

A Virtual Advising Appointment

Mandatory for students.

During your virtual advising appointment, you’ll meet one-on-one with a professional adviser and finalize your first semester class schedule. Before the meeting, you should review your college or school’s NSO information in the modules. Honors students should also review the Honors NSO page.

Number 4: In-person Program

An In-Person, On-Campus Program

Mandatory for all students and highly recommended for guests.

In June or July, attend an on-campus NSO on the date of your choosing to get answers to your questions, explore campus and learn about student life from those who're already living it.

  • June 8 or 9
  • June 12, 13, 14, 15 or 16
  • June 20, 22 or 23
  • June 26, 27, 28, 29 or 30
