SPS Orientation

Welcome to North Park!

We believe orientation, which takes place in the days leading up to the start of each new semester, plays an important role in marking the beginning of your academic journey at North Park University. Orientation is designed to acquaint you with our campus, our academic environment, and the resources available to you. We’re excited to welcome you to the School of Professional Studies and look forward to meeting you during orientation.

About New Student Orientation

We’re so glad you have chosen to make North Park your home for the next few years. During orientation, you will be able to register for courses, get some free North Park swag, and have any remaining questions answered.  Feel free to reach out to our coordinator with any questions at admissions-sps@northpark.edu.
