2018 Summer Orientation Sessions

  • Session I – July 9 & 10
  • Session II - July 12 & 13
  • Session III - July 16 & 17

Registration will OPEN in March.

Congratulations on your acceptance to Niagara University!

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.

Once registration is open you'll just need to click on the New Student Portal link (which will appear on the left-hand side of this page) and fill out all the forms. Once all the forms are completed, you will be able to register for SumO 2018.

You will also 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. 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 (which will appear on the left-hand side of this page once registration is open).

We are looking forward to meeting you!
