The goal of orientation is to help new students establish a foundation for success. Orientation is required for all first year baccalaureate degree-seeking students entering UAF with less than 30 credits. The program is also required for all E.D.G.E. students (first year students under 20 who are living on campus and entering with fewer than 20 credits), incoming international students and UA Scholars. All students new to UAF are encouraged to attend.
UAF orientation features a variety of workshops and activities to address the needs of new students, including campus tours, meetings with faculty and staff, numerous campus resource seminars and many fun events. Fall semester orientation includes the popular parents' orientation. Fees are $75 per participant for fall orientation and $35 for spring.
