First-year students: Orientation takes place in June and is based on your academic major. This required, two-day overnight event is an important introduction to university life and is your opportunity to receive academic advising in your major, select courses, and meet your peers. At the same time, we also offer a one-day program for parents/guardians.
Transfer students: You will receive a link for your mandatory Online Orientation, which includes information on connecting with your advisor and registering for your first semester courses. You will also be invited to an optional advising and registration event on campus if you would like to visit campus and/or receive additional support with this process.
International students: All new international students must attend International Student Orientation in addition to orientation activities for all new students. Orientation provides information sessions about the university and life in the U.S. Learn more about International Students Orientation
Week of Welcome (WOW): In September, the entire incoming class participates in campus traditions such as Convocation and Corsair Olympics, with more chances to meet faculty, staff, and students.
