Thank you for visiting NEIU's Orientation Webpage. Once you've been admitted to NEIU, and once you've accepted your offer of admission in order to reserve your spot, it's time to choose a day to come to campus and complete your orientation. Attending one orientation event on campus is required for all new freshmen and transfers.
Orientation dates and registration will be posted by March 1, 2023 and several dates will be available starting in May 2023 through August 2023, for new students starting classes in late-August.
Most new students will need to take a Math and English placement test (free for new students) prior to orientation. You can sign up for placement tests now while you wait for orientation.
Also, new first-year students are encouraged to participate in a Summer Transition Program. Students can take a free 6-week course starting in July and earn 3 college credits that count toward graduation. There are several classes to choose from. Sign up begins during Spring 2023.
