NSO 2020 postcard

​Welcome, New Blue Hens! 

We are pleased to welcome all of our incoming students to the UD Associate in Arts Program! New Student Orientation (NSO) is required for all new students to ensure that you have the best experience possible when making the transition from high school to college. NSO introduces you to our program and provides you with the knowledge you need to make the best possible start at the UD AAP. 

Virtual NSO

Traditionally, our NSO events have been hosted during the summer at our Dover, Georgetown, and Wilmington campuses. As the need for social distancing continues, however, all UD NSO activities this summer are being conducted online. These will include:

  • Academic advising and selection of fall courses
  • An online orientation course
  • A checklist of tasks to complete
  • Live information sessions 

Please note: All incoming students must complete the online ALEKS Math Placement ExamThe exam and instructions for completing it are located at My Blue Hen Home. Students who have not completed the placement exam will have to postpone their advisement and class selection, which may cause significant problems in the scheduling and registration process.

The individual advisement session is a crucial step in planning for a successful freshman year. Students who do not meet with an advisor for an assigned advisement appointment will be rescheduled for a later time and cannot be guaranteed their choice of seats in all classes. 

Individual Advisement Sessions

All incoming freshmen are required to attend an individual advisement session, held via Zoom, to select courses for the fall semester and discuss them with an academic advisor. Individual advisement and registration sessions begin June 23 and end July 16, 2020. Please be sure to check the individual registration dates for your course of study, as many of our programs meet for advisement sessions on different days. You may register for your advisement session via the My Blue Hen Home links below.
