SUU First Year Experience and Orientation

New Student Orientation

SUU Orientation programs are designed for students attending SUU who have less than 24 post-high school college credits. They provide students with tools and resources to support their transition to college life. Orientation is required for all new students by policy 6.5, V.D.11 of SUU Policies and Procedures. Students taking only online classes through SUU are exempt from attending orientation. Transfer and non-traditional students (over age 25, married or with with children) should attend a Transfer Express Orientation Session. 

Traditional Orientation

Traditional Orientation is a fast-paced program that begins at 8 a.m. and ends between 3 and 5 p.m.  Throughout the day participants will learn about academics, student life and services, meet with their advisor, and get to know other new students.  Students do not pay a fee to attend this program.
