2020 Summer Orientation Sessions:

  • Session I – July 9 & 10
  • Session II - July 13 & 14
  • Session III - July 16

Congratulations on your acceptance to Niagara University!

Registration begins March 9, 2020.

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 one and two give students the advantage of a one and a half-day session, while Session three 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 2020. 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 Christopher Sheffield, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs. 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. 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, please check out area hotels by following this link:

We are looking forward to meeting you!

You are also invited to join the Niagara University Fall Entry Class of 2020 Facebook group.

This is a great place to "meet" other new students and ask questions about your upcoming NU college experience.
