Freshman Student Orientation

2021 Freshman Orientation
For freshman students beginning school in August 2021

All incoming freshmen students must participate in an orientation session in order to register for their classes. We have one remaining orientation date option for new freshman students beginning school in August 2021. This date is August 20th (in person).

August 20, 2021 Late Orientation (In Person)

We have developed an Orientation Canvas course that all new students will have access to shortly after they register for an Orientation date. This course will serve as a resource that students can use in addition to the information they receive at Orientation.
