New Student Registration (NSR) is a mandatory, 1/2 day program for admitted incoming freshmen.

This program is designed to assist you in developing an understanding of the transition you will make to a collegiate environment and to enhance your success in college. 

There is no fee associated with your registration session. At registration, you will have the opportunity to meet an academic advisor, register for classes, and learn about your new university. Also, you will meet currently enrolled ASU students as well as other new students like yourself.
