Freshman Orientation Dates
You are a freshman for orientation purposes if you haven’t attended college after graduating from high school or if you have earned less than 27 college credits.
If your college credits were earned through a college-in-the-high-school program (e.g., Running Start), you’re a freshman for orientation and registration purposes.
All new students must attend an orientation program to enroll for their first semester of classes.

If you would like to participate in formal sorority or fraternity recruitment, you will need to select a summer Alive! date. Students cannot participate in formal recruitment until the orientation requirement is complete.
