Are your students ready for UND Orientation?

Things are about to get real — and real quick. Reservations for New Student Orientation open at 9 a.m. (CST) Jan. 26 for all students enrolled in summer or fall 2019.

Orientation is the day between June 10 and July 18 when most students and their parents/guests get their first taste of modern life on the UND campus. It’s also the day students meet one on one with academic advisors to discuss goals and register for classes.

And while students are doing their own thing, parents get the chance to ask ALL THE QUESTIONS THEY WANT (without random eyeball rolls) about student services, financial aid, housing and more. Lunch and walking tours also are part of the day.

Students won’t want to miss it. But before they can make their reservation, they’ll need to confirm their UND enrollment at least two business days in advance by paying the $200 nonrefundable deposit.

Different orientation days are designed for specific majors, but students shouldn’t worry if they’re yet undecided. That’s perfectly normal. We recommend they attend one of the Arts & Sciences sessions. Students can find a full schedule of all academic focus days on our website.

They’ll also find a handy checklist of what they should bring with them and what they should do before arriving at Orientation.
