NSOP Crew Chief Application

We are currently accepting applications for NSOP Crew Chiefs. Please log-in using your UNI and password. All CC and SEAS students should be able to log into the system. The log-in is located in the upper right hand corner of this page. If you have any questions, please email the NSOP Staff. Please note that if you are not selected to be a Crew Chief and still would like to be considered to be an Orientation Leader, you can select to do so in the application form. You do not need to submit an additional application for the Orientation Leader position. 

Please note that if you are an RA, COOP, ISOP, CUE, Under1Roof Facilitator, or Consent Facilitator then you are unable to be a Crew Chief due to scheduling conflicts.

We do accept applications from students who are studying abroad during spring 2016.

See the Study Abroad Application for the separate application process.
