New Student Conferences

Policies  > New Student Conferences & Enrollment (Registration) > New Student Conferences

New Students

New Student Conferences are designed to acquaint new students with the campus and the many available campus resources that enhance both academic success and personal development. The programs focus on several important areas, including the curriculum, academic advising, college success, scholarships and financial aid, campus activities, student services, student organizations, Cougar Spirit, and campus facilities. Enrollment (registration) for coursework also takes place during the event. New students will have an opportunity to interact with upperclassmen, faculty, academic advisors, and university staff members. By attending NSO or ART, new students will be best prepared for the start of the first term.


  • New Student Orientation (NSO) is mandatory for all incoming freshmen.

Transfer Students

  • Advising and Registration for Transfers (ART) is mandatory for all incoming transfer students and post baccalaureates that are seeking a second bachelor’s degree and are new to the University of Houston.
