What if I miss it?

Orientation is required for all new and transfer students. Because academic advising is included in the Orientation schedule, you won't be able to register for classes without participating. If you don't attend, it may be difficult to schedule appointments with your academic advisor at the start of the semester. This could impact your ability to register for classes due to limited course availability.

If you have questions, please contact the Office of Admissions by email or phone at 704.637.4402.
