Orientation is required for all newly admitted students. All newly admitted students must complete Orientation for the campus to which they are admitted prior to beginning classes.

The Orientation requirement must be completed in order for a student to be eligible to register for classes. Students who do not complete all aspects of the Orientation experience will be required to attend another session or update their term of entry to a future semester. Parents, friends or family members may not attend in lieu of the student.

Students will not be excused from all or part of an Orientation session to attend a high school graduation. Students should choose an Orientation date that does not conflict with these events.
