NSO 2020

Greetings from the entire Spelman College community, and congratulations on your decision to become a member of the class of 2024!

Recently you received an automated email notice that referenced a new student start date of August 14. This notice was sent in error, as the College has not yet finalized plans for the fall semester. We apologize for this miscommunication. Once the College announces plans for fall semester, we will reach out with updated information for you.

We are in the process of creating the NSO 2020 details. We appreciate your patience.

The NSO Program

The NSO Program seeks to accomplish the following:

  • Facilitate the smooth transition of new students, including transfer, international, domestic exchange, and Pauline E. Drake scholars to the Spelman community;
  • Introduce all students to Spelman’s educational mission, history and unique opportunities;
  • Provide academic advisement and course registration;
  • Aid students in understanding their responsibilities as members of the Spelman College academic and social communities;
  • Provide all new students with opportunities for social and recreational activities that develop sisterhood and supportive networks and that foster a sense of school pride.

You are expected to attend all programs and activities. The programs will help you successfully navigate the Spelman College experience. All changes to the New Student Orientation schedule will be posted on the mySpelman portal under the tab New Student Orientation.
