Your Orientation Requirements

Below are the steps detailing your Online Orientation and on-campus Transfer Orientation requirements.

STEP 1: Complete Online Orientation

The goal of Online Orientation is to provide you with valuable information about your college of enrollment and about University resources and services. Your adviser will reference the information you learn in the Online Orientation when you register for classes. Transfer students are required to complete Online Orientation before arriving for Transfer Orientation, and some colleges do not allow students to register for classes until they have done so. Be sure to print the Online Orientation Course Completion Certificate and bring it with you to Transfer Orientation.

Go here to complete Online Orientation.

STEP 2: Attend an on-campus Transfer Orientation program

At Transfer Orientation you will meet with your college adviser, register for fall courses, and get your U Card, the official student ID card. You will also have an opportunity to tour the campus, meet with representatives from a variety of departments, and connect with current transfer student leaders. Transfer Orientation is a good time to get answers to any questions you might have before classes start.
