University of Houston-Victoria



New Student Orientation

Students Orientation


As an incoming freshman, you will be required to attend New Student Orientation (NSO). At NSO, you will meet some of your future classmates; learn about UHV from both a staff and student perspective; and hear tips and strategies to make your time in college a true success. Parents will also be provided with their own orientation sessions. After the information sessions, you and your family will be able to finalize business (e.g. financial aid, housing) and meet with various departments from all over the university.

Note: New Student Orientation is by invitation ONLY. Students will need to be registered for class BEFORE attending NSO. Your recruiter and success coach will contact you to get signed up for both classes and NSO. If you have any questions, please email us at
