New students taking courses on-ground receive an invitation to the on-ground orientation, which typically takes place in the week before the term begins. The purpose of New Student Orientation is to provide information and tools for each student’s success from the point of program entry to degree completion. Some parts of the orientation may be virtual.

Each regional campus has their own on-ground orientation.

All new on-campus students are expected to attend the on-ground orientation. If students cannot attend the on-ground orientation, they should thoroughly review the New Admitted Students site and any virtual/recorded parts of the orientation.

Online students should thoroughly review the New Admitted Students site, as well as the Online Orientation Module.

International students are also expected to attend a separate orientation with the Office of Global Services.
