Welcome to UConn Storrs!
Greetings from the UConn Storrs campus! We are happy to have you as a new member of the UConn community. Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19, Orientation will continue to be online for all students starting classes at Storrs in January, 2022,
WHAT DOES ONLINE ORIENTATION CONSIST OF? Online Orientation is a module that contains many presentations on different topics related to UConn that will help all new students, (First-Year & Transfer) make a smooth transition to university. The Online Orientation module is comprehensive in nature and designed to cover the academic, support services and business processes that would have been included in the on-campus Orientation program. New students who paid the enrollment deposit will receive an email in mid to late November telling them to complete online Orientation. It is within the online Orientation module that new students will schedule an appointment to meet online with an academic advisor in their school/college and register for classes. Advising appointments for new students will occur in late December and January.
It is important that students check their email starting mid-November for these important emails from the Storrs Orientation office. These emails will be sent to the student at the student's personal and UConn email addresses.
WHEN CAN STUDENTS BEGIN ONLINE ORIENTATION? Students attending the Storrs campus who paid the $400 enrollment deposit will receive an email invitation in mid to late November telling them to begin online Orientation. At all University of Connecticut campuses Online Orientation is mandatory for all first-time degree-seeking students, (First-Year & Transfer) in order to meet virtually with an academic advisor in their school/college and register for classes. There is an "Orientation Hold" on the student's record preventing them from registering for classes until the student completes online Orientation. The hold will be removed by their academic advisor on the day they meet with them to register for classes. At the University of Connecticut all new students must meet with an academic advisor in their school/college in order to register for classes.
