New student orientation


Attend UAF's New Student Orientation and connect with all of the programs, departments, people, and opportunities that UAF has to offer to help you succeed as you transition into your college experience!

The University of Alaska Fairbanks strives to make our orientation program accessible for all individuals. If you or a family member who is attending orientation need accommodations to participate, please contact our office to request services.


All new students are strongly encouraged to attend New Student Orientation. It is REQUIRED for:

  • All new bachelor students registered for 12 or more credits (6 credits in-person), including transfer students with 30 credits or fewer and international undergraduate students (including F-1 and J-1 visa status).  
  • For Spring 2021 Orientation, all students living on-campus are also required to attend.


If you fall into one of the two requirement categories, you do not need to register.
