We're excited to welcome you to campus!

Orientation will prepare you to succeed at NIU. The program you attend depends on the semester you'll start at NIU and whether you're a first-year or transfer student. Space is limited and sessions fill up quickly. Learn more about orientation and register today.

Family Connections

Family Orientation

Your family members are welcome to come to campus for a family orientation. Our family program runs concurrently with the student program, so you'll attend some sessions together.


Reentering Students

If you previously completed at least one semester at NIU but are not currently enrolled, contact us at 815-753-1535 for orientation information.
