Information for Incoming STEM Students

It is important for incoming STEM Students to feel comfortable and prepared for their first year at Southern Oregon University, and we strive to provide the resources to make this possible. Below, students may review information which is usually covered in a New Student Orientation appointment with an advisor, though this information should not be used in place of a formal appointment with a staff member. During a new student appointment, there is a plethora of information covered, and we want to provide an opportunity to review the key notes of one of these appointments. Please feel free to review any of the videos below, and follow up with an advisor for any remaining questions!

Please note, students will need to be signed into their InsideSOU accounts to access the below videos. 

New Student Information is offered in 3 primary sections.
