New Student & Family Programs (NSFP) supports new students and families throughout their transition and involvement at the University of Colorado Boulder. 

In order to aid in the transition to CU Boulder, all incoming undergraduate students must complete a virtual orientation program, the Online Experience, in order to register for classes. The Online Experience requires activation of a student's IdentiKey and can be accessed in Buff Portal. This program is critical to the college experience as it helps incoming students learn more about student success, advising, registration and campus resources. New students should check their CU Boulder email account for more information about the Online Experience and other important next steps.

New Student & Family Programs also collaborates with campus partners to plan fall and spring welcome events surrounding the first day of classes. Students participate in programs and have opportunities to connect with current students, faculty and staff to create a healthy and positive transition to CU Boulder.
