New Student Orientation and Registration

As a new student, we would like to welcome you to the Northwest family. We are glad you have chosen to continue your education at Northwest Missouri State University. You are probably ready to register for classes and you may be unsure of what has to be done before classes begin. New Student Orientation and Registration will give you an opportunity to get the information you are looking for.

New Student Orientation and Registration is a half-day program that will help you become more acquainted with the campus and prepare you for financial aid online entrance counseling requirements. You will also have an opportunity to meet with an advisor who will help you register for classes.

Transfer and returning students beginning classes in the summer or fall will attend New Student Orientation and Registration in April, preregister in summer and attend orientation during Advantage, or attend General Registration in August. (First-time freshmen enrolling in the fall will attend SOAR instead of New Student Orientation and Registration.) All new or returning students beginning classes in the spring will attend New Student Orientation and Registration in late fall or General Registration in January just before classes begin.
