Prepare for Orientation

As you prepare for your upcoming Orientation session, here is some helpful information to review before your arrival on campus or your virtual session (transfer only).

General reminders:

  • If you need to make any changes to your Orientation date, please log back into your Orientation account to select a new date.
  • If you have a family member or guest that is planning to join you, you must add them as a guest at the end of your registration and pay the guest fee (in-person Orientations only). They should receive a confirmation email to the guest email provided if they have been successfully registered. To add a guest, log back in to your Orientation account and go to the “Guest” tab.
  • You should make plans to be present for the entire time of your scheduled Orientation. If you cannot, please reschedule for a time that works better for you.

Prepare for First-Year Orientation

Prepare for In-Person Transfer Orientation

The program will begin around 12 p.m. and will end around 5 p.m. on June 21 and July 8; the program will begin around 10 a.m. on August 19 to accommodate time for advising for students who have not been advised prior to this date. Your reminder email will include a Check-In time and you will receive this time several days before your scheduled Orientation. Check-in usually begins about 45 minutes prior to the session's start time. Students are required to attend the entire program.

Prepare for Virtual Transfer Orientation

The virtual Transfer Orientation program is an abbreviated version of Orientation that covers the main highlights and gives you an opportunity to meet with staff and faculty and get any final questions answered. The program runs about 3-3.5 hours total and you should plan to be logged on and participating the entire time.
