New Student & Family Orientation Dates and Schedules

Welcome and congratulations on being admitted to the nation’s first, and one of its finest, public universities.

Each New Student Orientation date has a corresponding fall course registration time, during which students MUST have access to the internet in order to register for classes. Thus, when choosing a New Student Orientation session, you must be available to attend the orientation session both days and have internet access for its corresponding fall course registration period, which you can do from anywhere in the world with internet access.

If you are unable to register for fall courses during a particular session's assigned registration period, please select another New Student Orientation session with a fall course registration period during which you will have internet access. New Student Orientation sessions are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and are limited in capacity.

There is no advantage or disadvantage to attending New Student Orientation earlier or later in the summer. Seats in various classes are reserved for first-year students for each session. These seats are released during every registration period, giving all students the same opportunity for fall course registration.
