Welcome to UConn!
Greetings from the Storrs campus. We are happy to have you as a new member of our entering class! Due to the Covid-19 situation the university decided in late March to put the Orientation program online for summer 2020 as many other colleges and universities in the nation have decided to do. Online Orientation is a module that will help first-time degree seeking students, (First-Year, Transfer & International), make a smooth transition to the University of Connecticut at Storrs. The Online Orientation module is comprehensive in nature and designed to cover all the academic and business processes that would have been completed in the on-campus Orientation program. Online Orientation needs to be completed before new students can sign up for classes. After students complete Parts A & B of online Orientation they will be able to schedule an advising session where they will meet online, by phone or by email with an academic advisor in their school or college to register for fall classes. There will be important information and reminders communicated to new students during Online Orientation. It is to their advantage to take notes. Students attending the Storrs campus who paid the $300 enrollment deposit can sign up for Online Orientation on this page below. The Orientation Advising/Registration sessions are taking place in June and July. Orientation is mandatory for all first-time degree-seeking students at all UConn campuses if they want to meet with and advisor to register for classes.
All Online Orientation reservations for new students admitted to the Storrs campus are coordinated by the Storrs Orientation Office. UConn's regional campuses coordinate their individual Orientation programs. Due to the Covid-19 situation all Storrs Orientation staff are working remotely. Please contact the Storrs Orientation office by email at email@example.com if you are a Storrs student and have other questions.
If you have been admitted to one of our regional campuses, you will participate in the online Orientation program for your regional campus and will receive an email when the Orientation module is ready for you to begin. Please contact your regional campus directly if you have other questions.
