New Student Orientation is designed to assist you with the transition to UNO's academic and student life, provide you an opportunity to become familiar with your college, meet faculty and administrators, and to help you register for your first semester of classes.

Welcome to UNO!

Our orientation programs feature small group discussions directed by current UNO students to introduce you to university resources, campus facilities, student services, social and recreational activities, and answer any questions that you may have concerning UNO or the college experience. It is a chance to make new friends and begin your academic life positively.

Meet Our Staff!

We have developed THREE different orientation programs to meet the unique needs of UNO's diverse student body:


  • Required for first-time college students.
  • First-time transfer students can come too!


  • Required for students transferring with less than 60 hours.


  • For International Students only.

All new freshman students attending the University of New Orleans are required to register for and attend an Orientation Program.

It is very important that you attend the earliest orientation possible! Orientation is the time when you schedule your classes. There are more options of classes earlier in the summer. So remember attend orientation early!

Adult Students (over the age of 25) are not required to attend an orientation, but are welcome at any of the programs listed above. The office staff and Orientation Leader staff would be able to sit down with you one-on-one, if you would rather that. You can also contact us at 504-280-5458, or with any further questions!
