New Student Orientation is a busy time, full of activities designed to get all of our new students settled, connected, integrated, and prepared for their first year at Cornell. NSO begins for first year students with Move-In Day on Wednesday, August 30 and concludes the evening of Saturday, September 2.  Transfer students participate in an abbreviated schedule of NSO, especially for transfer students.  Transfer students move-in on Friday, September 1.

There will be limited time to run errands outside of Mount Vernon on Move In Day. We recommend you do not plan to leave campus for significant amounts of time after arrival, as informational sessions begin shortly after lunch and run through the afternoon.
