Welcome to New Student Orientation!

Once you arrive on campus, you will become part of a community where students and faculty make the most of every moment.  An atmosphere where ideas, events, and exciting opportunities ensure a rich and satisfying university experience. New Student Orientation is your first step in successfully transitioning to AIU. All newly admitted undergraduate students are required to attend an orientation session. For freshmen and transfer students, orientation is a full 1-day experience designed to help students become acclimated to the university.

During orientation, you will have the chance to meet with faculty and staff from your respective school, new classmates, and current students. Orientation is a time for you to learn about campus resources, receive academic advising in preparation for registering for classes, and learn about AIU! You will leave orientation with a class schedule for the upcoming semester and all the materials and resources you need to begin your journey towards success.
