New Student Orientation

Orientation is delivered in two parts.

Part 1: You will enroll in your online Northeast Next Steps class at New Student Registration. This class will be available in Canvas, our online learning management system, after July 1. Complete all assignment by August 19.

This class is free and has no credits associated with it. Its purpose is to prepare you for a fantastic first semester and serve as a resource throughout your first year so that you can refer to it as needed. This workshop will introduce you to resources, strategies, and departments related to academic success, life as a Hawk, paying for college, and next steps. You can complete this course at your own pace but make sure to have all activities by the date listed above.

Part 2: Your on-campus New Student Orientation event is scheduled for August 19th-21st. Information about New Student Orientation will be mailed to you in July! Check back for more details!
