Freshman and Transfer Orientation 2021 Updates

Freshman and transfer students have received communications from our Advising Team and have had the opportunity to participate in a pre-orientation meeting.

After completing the orientation module, the online registration hold will be released to allow students to enroll in classes.

After the Academic Information session and Group Advising session at the in-person and virtual orientations, advisors will be available to assist students with registration. Students may also schedule advising appointments (see below).
