The Counseling Center coordinates the New Student Orientation program (NSO) for new freshmen and transfer students. NSO introduces new students to university programs and services, and provides an opportunity for new students to interact with staff, faculty, and administrators. During NSO, new students also receive academic advisement and register for classes. All new students are required to attend an orientation program prior to enrolling in the Fall or Spring semester. NSO is offered during the months of June, July, August, and January. There is a $110 fee for New Student Orientation and a $55 fee for Transfer Students. This fee is nonrefundable and must be paid prior to attending your orientation program. Your Orientation fee may be paid by Master and Visa Credit/Debit Card by calling (252) 335-3207 or by check/money order payable to Elizabeth City State University and reference New Student Orientation in memo line.
