Greetings Matadors!
We are excited to officially welcome you to the Matador Family! NSO is a required activity for all new students and will be occurring throughout July and August.   

NSO Online (In July - for all students)
NSO Online is a set of comprehensive modules that address university programs, services, and resources available in a virtual and eventual on-campus capacity. Students are able to complete NSO Online at their own pace throughout the month of July.

NSO Live! (in August)
NSO Live! is our way of engaging with our newest Matadors! NSO Leaders will be facilitating small groups through Zoom on a wide set of topics including Student Involvement & Belonging, Academic Success, Diversity and Inclusion, and a Virtual Campus Tour. These smaller virtual gatherings can assist in answering lingering questions and offer a more individualized opportunity to connect with other CSUN students. 

NOTE FOR FRESHMAN and INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: NSO Live! session groups are organized by academic college/major or student groups (ex: EOP, Housing, etc.).  This is to help connect participants to others that may be affiliated with similar interests and schedules.  If you can’t register for the NSO Live! session dedicated to your college/major/group affiliation, then please reach out to the NSO staff right away.   

NOTE FOR DOMESTIC TRANSFER STUDENTS: NSO Live! is optional for domestic transfer students, and those wishing to participate should have finished their NSO online program prior.   

What Next? 
Postcards and/or emails will be sent out to all new students prompting them to register for NSO. Select the appropriate links below to begin your NSO experiance.
