Orientation

Congratulations on becoming a Spartan!

We are incredibly excited to meet you! In order to register for classes, you must attend a mandatory orientation session called Orientation Part 1 - Getting Started: Preparing for Advising and Registration.

 

This session is approximately 60-90 minutes and will be hosted online via Zoom. When possible, we recommend that students plan to join these sessions from a computer or laptop rather than a mobile device. It will introduce your next steps and the technology you will need to move forward as a Spartan. 

 

Important Reminder: Complete your application before attending Orientation Part 1. To apply, log onto our Admissions Portal , create an account, and complete your application. Check out this short video if you need help.
