Eagle View Orientation


First Time in College (FTIC) Orientation


Summer and Fall Semester Admits

FTIC students admitted for the Summer or Fall 2017 term will attend a two-day Eagle View Orientation program that includes a mandatory overnight stay. Our overnight stay allows students to experience living in a residence hall, provides an exciting opportunity to gain familiarity of what college will be like, and encourages incoming students to meet one another. Students will gain valuable information about navigating the university, meet with an academic counselor, and register for their courses during orientation.


 Students admitted for the Summer 2017 term must sign up for one of the orientation programs before June 22nd

Students admitted for the Fall 2017 term can sign up for any available orientation date. 


 Summer 2017 Progam Dates will be available in early-February 2017.

Please check back with us later. 

Please take a look at our Summer/Fall 2016 Tentative Agenda and Pre-Orientation Checklist for FTIC students to help prepare you for your orientation program.
