FTIC students must attend an on-campus orientation session. If you are attending the late orientation on August 20-21st, orientation check-in is from 8-9 a.m. at the Center for Fine and Performing Arts (Building 82). If you are living on campus in the Fall, you will be able to move into your residence hall room from 1-5 p.m. on August 19th. If you are living off campus in the Fall, you need to arrange lodging accommodations and transportation to campus.

Transfer students may choose to attend an on-campus orientation session or take the online orientation. For more information, please review your orientation welcome packet: Transfer Orientation Welcome Packet
All fees associated with orientation are non-refundable.
