Registration is now OPEN!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Niagara University!

If you have not already, you will be receiving information from Admissions with your student ID number and instructions on how to set-up your NU PurplePass. Once you've submitted your enrollment deposit, the next step is to register for one of our three Summer Orientation (SumO) sessions. Please note: Niagara University students are required to attend one of the two-day sessions. In order to register, click on the Welcome Portal link (left-hand side of this page) and fill out all the forms. Once the forms are completed, you will be able to register for SumO 2017.

In addition, you will be getting a welcome letter in your home mailbox from Jason Jakubowski, dean of students. This letter contains important details about Summer Orientation, so make sure you read it and share the information with your family. Remember that space for each session is limited. Sign up early to ensure that you get the session you desire.

Families are strongly encouraged to attend both days as well. Students will be housed overnight in a residence hall. Out-of-town parents have the option to stay in an area hotel or take advantage of family housing on NU's campus. For more details about families staying on campus, click on the Parents Overnight Stay link (left-hand side of this page).

We are looking forward to meeting you!
