Online Orientation

Can’t make it to campus? Check out the video below where one of our Peer Mentors, Daniel, and our Student Navigator, Brian Welsh, walk you through an online orientation.


Students are strongly urged to attend New Student Orientation on the date set aside for their program of study as faculty will be in attendance in most cases. Additionally, it will be the best opportunity to network with peers who are starting your classes with you. However, students who are not able to attend on the date listed for their program are welcome to attend New Student Orientation on ANY one of the dates that the event is being held this summer.
