Virtual Orientation

You must complete your New Student Virtual Orientation modules before you meet with an academic advisor.  If you have questions about how to complete the Virtual Orientation modules, please visit the New Student Orientation Registration Page.

Academic Advising

Now that you’ve completed the Virtual Orientation Canvas modules, it’s time to speak with an advisor. Please plan to attend one of the following Zoom sessions to speak with an academic advisor about your first semester of courses.

Spring 2022 Admitted Students

These Zoom sessions are scheduled for you to meet with a pre-nursing advisor for New Student Orientation to remove academic advising holds. Please plan to attend one of these sessions, as it will be your last chance to meet with an advisor before the start of the semester. It is important to complete the Canvas coursework before you attend a Zoom meeting, as it is beneficial to have that background knowledge before getting advising on fall course selection.

*Please log in on time—if you attempt to join the meeting more than 15 minutes late you will be required to attend a different session.
