New Student Orientation (NSO) is a required program for all students enrolling at Gallaudet for the first time, including first-year and transfer students. NSO is intended to help students prepare for the start of their academic careers at Gallaudet University. During NSO, you will have time to meet your educational and career advisors, become familiar with Gallaudet University resources, and get to know your classmates. There is no other place like this globally; your experience here will be unique and memorable.
