The orientation program will consist of an introduction to your chosen academic program, computer support, informative sessions about campus procedures and policies, how to get involved in campus activities, opportunities to meet faculty, staff, and other new students, curriculum, academic support services, degree requirements, and registering for Fall 2023 classes.
