Orientation fills up on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once you are admitted, you can register for orientation through your New Student Center.

Orientation Instructions

New freshmen are required to participate in an orientation session. Transfer and transfer freshmen students are not required to participate in orientation but doing so is strongly encouraged, and transfer-specific options are available.

Register for orientation through the New Student Center using the email and password you created when you applied for admission. If you don’t remember your password, use the reset password function available on the login screen.

Orientation sessions are not offered for non-degree seeking, visiting, and dually enrolled students.

International and graduate students participate in an entirely separate orientation facilitated by the Graduate and International Admissions Office.

Immunization Records

All students enrolling in on-campus classes must submit their immunization records before enrolling in classes.

Some high schools will include immunization records with official high school transcripts. This is also an acceptable way to submit your records. If your records are received by our office, we will send them to the health center for you.

Complete Housing Contract

The housing contract and selection of roommate and room are completed in five phases. You will be notified by the Housing Office when you are able to begin each phase, and you will receive reminders from our office regarding the general status of your housing contract.
