August Welcome

This one-day, online orientation is for new freshmen, transfer students, military service members and other nontraditional students.

You will…

  • Watch a pre-advising Divisional Orientation from the college or school your major falls under
  • Meet with an academic advisor from your chosen major
  • Register for your fall classes
  • Receive information on residential life, campus dining, financial aid, billing, and more
