  2. Take all your placement tests, if necessary, before Orientation.
    Placement test(s) must be completed prior to orientation, if required.
  3. RSVP.
    RSVP online. Please RSVP early - at least one week prior to the orientation date you plan to attend. Space is limited for each program!
  4. Mark the day on your calendar.
    Once you RSVP, make sure you save the date!
  5. Schedule for Orientation Day:
    Check-in is from 12:00pm - 12:30pm; the program will run approximately to 4:30pm. Sandwiches and refreshments will be served at the end of the program.
  6. Attend Orientation.
    Orientation gives you the opportunity to select courses and plan your fall schedule. Academic advisors and your future professors will be on hand to help in the process. You'll register for classes, learn about campus services, and get your Spartan Card (student ID card). You'll also have the opportunity to tour the campus, and meet future classmates in your major.

Arrive for Orientation between 12:00 and 12:30 on your scheduled date. Orientation is fun, informative, and it's a great way to begin a successful college career!
