The New Student Orientation program helps ease the transition to college for incoming students and their parents and supporters. Students get to know campus, meet classmates and prepare for a great first year at the University. Orientation is required for all first-year students, and optional but highly recommended for new transfer students. Parents and other supporters are invited to participate in a family orientation program that takes place at the same time.

Orientation sessions are offered twice per year:

  • Summer Orientation for students starting school in the fall semester
  • January Orientation for students starting school in the spring semester

Are you starting school in August?

Students beginning classes in the fall semester (August) attend either a single-day or overnight orientation session held in June or July. Orientation is required for all first-year students and optional but strongly encouraged for all new transfer students.

All orientations consists of three parts:

  1. A Pre-orientation, web-based program to be completed prior to attending orientation. Log in information will be sent via email.
  2. In-person, on campus orientation day(s).
  3. Academic Advising takes place the week following orientation. While attending orientation, students make a virtual appointment to meet with their academic advisor.
