New Student Orientation

    Welcome to Saint Leo University. Your Journey Begins Here!

    You have worked hard to get here and you should be proud! We are here to help you plan your next steps and keep you informed. We cannot wait to meet you!

    New Student Orientation (NSO) includes a variety of programs and events that will set you on the path toward academic and personal success at Saint Leo University. NSO is an exciting experience that acquaints you with our campus, academic programs, support services, policies, staff and faculty, and is the beginning to your friendships with other new and current students. All first-year and transfer students are required to attend orientation.

    We are looking forward to getting to know you, and having the opportunity to work with you over the next several years.

    Take a moment to review our helpful New Student Checklist to familiarize yourself with the various documents and tasks you will need to complete prior to your arrival here on campus for the semester.
