All new freshmen and transfer students enrolling on the Main Campus (in-person or remotely) are required to attend a 2-day virtual orientation program before registering for classes.
Sign up for a virtual orientation session in the Next Steps Center:
After registering for orientation, follow the steps below to complete your orientation and check-in.
A few days before your orientation session, you will receive an email letting you know you can access the Digital Orientation tile in your Next Steps Center. This step in your orientation process should take you no longer than 30 minutes and is an introduction to the University of Arizona and what it means to be a Wildcat.
The date the Digital Orientation tile becomes available depends which Global Orientation session you are attending:
IMPORTANT Make sure you have completed the math and writing placement tiles in the Next Steps Center, otherwise you may not be able to enroll in writing or math courses during your first semester.
Navigate through your D2L Course. This academic course will walk you through everything that you need to know about your academic college and your program of study. The link to your D2L Course can be found in Step 2 of your Digital Orientation tile in the Next Steps Center. The deadline to complete the D2L course is 10:00 am (Arizona time) on day 2 of orientation.
On day 1 of orientation, attend the Global Orientation from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm (Arizona time).
If you have completed the Digital Orientation tile and D2L course, then you will be able to meet with your academic advisor. Whether you're scheduling the appointment or your advisor is scheduling it for you, this is your time to meet with your advisor to discuss and register for your Spring courses.
Whether it's before, on, or after your orientation day, explore the Orientation Resource Site to ensure you get all of your questions answered.
Complete the Document Review e-form by January 11. The purpose of the e-form is to confirm your current location outside the U.S. so we can update your visa type in UAccess and cancel your I-20 (if issued).
IMPORTANTWithout the e-form, we cannot appropriately code you in UAccess as being outside the United States, and you may be charged the International Student Fee ($200) and Student Health Insurance Plan ($1,695).
