2024 New Student Orientation Programs

About the Program

Spring Orientation is a virtual orientation program designed for new first-year and transfer students to explore campus and connect with other incoming students, staff, and faculty. There will also be a new student luncheon held on the first day of classes, which all new students are invited to attend.

Registration and Cost

All new students, including students transferring into the Nursing program, must participate in Spring Orientation. BBA program students will attend a separate orientation program. The cost of orientation is billed to each student's account as a mandatory orientation fee covering all program and administrative costs to run Spring Orientation.
