The academic year, for entering students, begins with a mandatory orientation program. The purpose of orientation is to better acquaint you with your academic program, rigor, fellow classmates, and NUNM community.
During orientation, students will hear from various departments and staff members; including Financial Aid, the Registrar’s Office, Business Office, Office of Student Life, and the program deans. Information regarding Honor Council, Title IX, Academic Accommodations and much more will be discussed to help familiarize the incoming class to the policies and procedures at NUNM.
You also will be better prepared to navigate NUNM upon completion of orientation. To find the dates of the next mandatory New Student Orientation, please visit the NUNM Academic Calendar. As each cohort is unique, orientation schedule will vary in times and activities.
Incoming students will be contacted by the Office of Student Life with details of orientation, once they have completed the admissions process.

NUNM applies this testing policy to students, employees, and volunteers, as the risk of working in a medical setting maybe high. New students, and students returning from over one year of leave, must be tested with the Quantiferon Gold TB blood test, which is to be completed during New Student Orientation and before matriculation in classes. The required test can also be obtained at various labs, and for a reduced rate at the NUNM Clinic lab. Please contact NUNM TB Coordinator for forms and information. NUNM TB Testing Screening FAQs
