Undergraduate Admissions

New Student Orientation

If you've been admitted to LSU Shreveport as a First-Time Freshman, congratulations! Your next step is to register for New Student Orientation!

New Student Orientation (NSO) designed to welcome students to their new life as an LSUS Pilot. At NSO you will have an opportunity to learn more about the campus community, meet other students, and register for your first semester classes!  Attendance is required for all newly admitted freshmen.  New transfer students are welcome to attend as well.

Orientation is conducted in small groups led by some of our very own students. LSU Shreveport Orientation Leaders will assist new students in exploring the variety of academic and co-curricular opportunities on campus.

Incoming students participating in orientation will meet current LSU Shreveport students; learn about academic majors, campus organizations, and social/leadership opportunities; receive individualized assistance in class scheduling; and complete registration for classes.  If you or your guest have a disabling condition for which ADA/504 accommodations are required for participation at NSO, please notify us of your accommodation needs seven days in advance of your NSO date.   New Student Orientation will cost each attendee $30.00.
