Orientation Steps

Step #1: Orientation Appointment Registration
Welcome to UCCS
Students will register for orientation and schedule a 1-hour orientation appointment (on-campus or virtual). During the appointment, orientation student staff will welcome new students and guide them through class registration. Each student will be provided a personalized packet prepared by their academic advisor containing course recommendations, transfer credit information, and ways to connect with their advisor. We recommended scheduling your appointment for the earliest available date for the best selection and availability of classes.
Step #2: Complete the Pre-Orientation Appointment Checklist
Prepare for Success
Completing the checklist prior to the student's orientation appointment will help optimize the effectiveness of your appointment. Completion of these items will help ensure a proper preparation for your UCCS journey.
Step 3: UCCS Open House (Optional)
Campus Community Connection
Exclusively designed for new students and their families, UCCS Open House provides an in-person opportunity to connect with the campus community. UCCS Open House features campus and the residence hall tours, academic program representatives, and numerous campus resources. Open House registration is available following your student's orientation appointment.
Step 4: Attend an International Pre-departure Webinar (Optional)
Enrich your orientation experience
Students and family members are invited to join us for pre-departure webinars. These webinars will provide helpful information to help you prepare for your arrival to UCCS.
