The Office for New Student Programs utilizes an online registration system that allows students to choose a session that works with their schedule. Many dates will be offered throughout the summer months for First Year and Transfer students admitted for the Fall 2013 semester. These dates will be made available later this semester, so check back with us soon! Students are strongly encouraged to attend orientation as early as possible to ensure the best course availabilty.
It is important that newly admitted students complete their own reservation for orientation. Parents or family members should not take it upon themselves to register on behalf of the student.
