2019 Summer Orientation Sessions

  • Session I – July 11 & 12
  • Session II - July 15 & 16
  • Session III - July 18 - Optional Student Overnight Stay: For this session, students have the option to stay in the residence halls overnight (even though it is only a one day program). Student events will be held 5:30 p.m.-12 a.m. This is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow classmates!

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 sessions.

Sessions 1 and 2 give students the advantage of a one and a half-day session, while Session 3 is a one-day option. For a full description and the cost of both, please visit the FAQ page (link on the left-hand side of this page).

In order to register, just click on the Welcome Portal link (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 2019. Please note: health services requirements need not be complete prior to SumO. However, information does need to be submitted in full 30 days prior to the start of your fall classes.

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. Space for each session is capped for balance and Session 3 has a strict limit of 100 students. Sign up early to ensure that you get the session you desire.

Families are strongly encouraged to attend SumO as well. During Session 1 and 2, students will be housed overnight in a residence hall. Out-of-town families 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 and the cost, click on the Parents Overnight Stay link (left-hand side of this page).

We are looking forward to meeting you!
