Online Fall Orientation
At New Student Registration, you will enroll in your online Fall Orientation class. This class is free and has no credits associated with it; its purpose is to simply prepare you for a fantastic first semester. You will complete this class through Canvas, our online learning management system. 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 in one sitting or throughout the summer. After completion, Fall Orientation will remain accessible to you throughout your first year so that you can refer to it as needed.

Freshman On-Campus Students

We can't wait for you to join us on campus. Move-In Day is all about you and getting you settled into your housing on campus. You will be receiving a communication from the Residence Life team that will contain your date and time for move in.
