Online orientations are only offered for students pursuing degree programs where courses are all online or are transient/visiting students. Currently, the only programs that are online are the BAAS program in the New College, Coursera, and certain degrees in the College of Health and Public Service.

For all other students admitted for the spring 2021 semester, orientation will be in a virtual format. The virtual orientation is scheduled over the course of a week to allow you time to complete all requirements. Visit our freshman or transfer orientation pages for more information.


The cost to participate in an online program orientation is $45.00.
