 Orientation and Placement Testing

You will not need to come to campus in advance for your placement testing or orientation unless you want to.  We understand that coming to campus during the summer can be costly and difficult.

Students who do not attend orientation will complete an online orientation program during the summer and can participate in other orientation activities during move-in weekend.
