Congratulations and welcome to New England Conservatory!
We are delighted that you will be joining us at NEC and look forward to meeting you during our in-person Orientation which runs from from August 28 through the first day of classes on September 8. However Orientation starts online before you arrive at NEC. On July 6 you received an email to your NEC email address with directions on how to access the orientation platform: Orientation NEO, which will include information on ensemble auditions, department hearings and placement exams as well as information from your Academic and International Student advisors, department chairs, and other departments on-campus. Please note all placement exam will be administered online before arriving in Boston. Participation in online and in-person orientation is mandatory for all new students.
Please see below some preliminary information you need to know about Orientation and joining the NEC community. More information, including a schedule of orientation events which we call the Prelude Calendar, will be posted below and on Orientation NEO. Both sites will be updated periodically over the summer.
New students who are living in the Residence Hall will receive information about move in from Steven Sweat, Director of Residence Life and Housing.
We wish you a restful summer and look forward to meeting you in the Fall. Please feel free to contact the Office of Student Services if you have any questions.
