New Student Orientation

Incoming Social Science Spartans

Welcome to MSU and the College of Social Science! The College of Social Science offers extensive opportunities for scholarship to transform the human experience. Fields of study in the college prepare students to think critically, analyze thoughtfully, work cooperatively, and solve problems effectively as well as offer numerous experiential learning opportunities. 

New students will work with academic advisors in the College of Social Science to complete NSO’s Checkpoint 3: Advising and Enrollment. Once students have completed Checkpoint 2, they will be contacted by the Academic and Student Affairs Office in the College of Social Science with information about their next steps to prepare for advising and enrollment.
