We are excited to welcome you to the Mountain Lion family! Registration for upcoming orientations will be available in late February.

Freshman student orientation is designed for students who:

  1. Are under the age of 21 and have not completed college classes after high school graduation.
         * If you are 21 or older, and you have not completed college classes after high school graduation, you will need to attend a transfer student orientation.
          * If you have completed college classes after high school graduation (regardless as to your age), you will need to attend a transfer student orientation.
                                                                                                                          -OR-
  2. Have completed college classes while in high school, are under the age of 21, and have not completed college classes after high school graduation.

At orientation, you will:

All freshmen orientations will last from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., and it is important to schedule accordingly to ensure you can attend the full orientation.
