New Student Orientation

The University’s New Student Orientation program is designed to provide a clear and concise introduction to the university community. The program shares important information with students and their families regarding academic and student services. New Student Orientation is offered over the summer for students enrolling in the Summer or Fall semester and November through January for students enrolling in the Spring semester.
