New Student Orientation Program

The goal of New Student Orientation is to help incoming 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 strongly encouraged to attend.

New Student Orientation features a variety of workshops and activities to address the needs of incoming students, including campus tours, meetings with faculty and staff, numerous campus resource seminars and many fun events. Fall semester orientation includes the popular and free Family Orientation. Fees are $75 per student for fall orientation and $35 for spring.
