Freshmen - Fall Semester
All students who are 2018 high school graduates and students who are first time freshmen under the age of 23 must attend New Student Orientation.
If you are 23 or older and are not transferring from another institution, we recommend you attend our Transfer & Adult Freshman orientation session. We look forward to helping you transition to USA and will familiarize you with the campus, student services, and assist you in registering for classes.
New students must be admitted before attending orientation. The one-time orientation fee of $100 will be required at the time of orientation registration. If your orientation plans change and you choose to cancel your registration, you must submit a notice of cancellation for Southbound Orientation at least 14 days prior to your scheduled session. For refund consideration, notice of cancellation must be received by May 1, 2018.
Both students and parents are welcome to attend New Student Orientation. A separate parent orientation fee of $40 will be due at time of orientation registration for each parent/guest wanting to attend.
The remaining New Student Orientation date(s) for Fall 2018 incoming freshmen are as follows:
Tuesday, July 10, 2018 - Freshman Orientation Session 7
