New Student Spring 2018 Orientation

Welcome to Bowie State University! Your college career begins when you sign up for New Student Orientation (NSO), a two-part program designed to help you get started at BSU. During NSO, we work to help you get familiar with the campus (Discover BSU) and help you select your first classes.
 

In short, this two-part orientation program consists of:

  • Discover BSU. The program is designed to assist you with a smooth transition to college. First-year students will attend a one-day orientation session. For more information, contact the office at 301-860-4406 or visit the Discover BSU page.

  • Academic Advising Center. This office will direct you to advising and help register for classes. For more information, contact Dr. Yvette C. Galloway: 301-860-4072 or AdvisingBSU@bowiestate.edu.

First-year freshmen students must complete all placement tests prior to January 10, 2018.
