Fall First-Year Student Orientation

New students and parents congregate in Talley Student Union for orientation.

Welcome, Class of 2026!

Orientation Registration Opens in April 2022

The Office of New Student Programs welcomes you to NC State University, a community of achievers rich in tradition and academic excellence. To assist you in becoming a part of the Wolfpack, we invite you to attend a First-Year Student Orientation session. Once registration opens and you have paid your Advanced Enrollment Deposit confirming you will attend NC State, you will be able to register for an Orientation session.

This page is for first-year, domestic students beginning at NC State in August 2022. If you are a Summer Start student (beginning June 2022), International student (beginning August 2022), or Spring Connect student (beginning January 2023), view the following pages for Orientation sessions specifically designed for your transition.
