Summer Orientation

Are you an incoming first-year or transfer student?

Visit the Summer Orientation website for travel information, dates, schedules, and to register.


Summer Orientation is your chance to learn about the University, ask questions, sign up for classes, get to know people, and begin your adventure as a new student. Summer Orientation sessions for first-year students last for two days. For transfer students, the sessions are completed in one day. A program for parents and guests runs concurrently with the program for new students. Additional orientation programming will take place in the fall after you arrive on Move-In Day.

The Summer Orientation website is your place to learn about everything orientation.
