What to Expect at Orientation
Family members are encouraged to participate in the online, pre-orientation homework for first-year students and the online orientation sessions for transfer students. These online modules can be found via the Student Success Community portal on your student's Canvas homepage for both first-year and transfer students.
Families are also invited to attend in-person orientation with their first-year students to participate in a Supporting Your College Student information session. This session will take place at the same time as your student's enrollment advising.
Registration is required in advance to attend first-year orientation and space is limited. To guarantee that you are able to join your first-year student at their in-person orientation session, please sign up at the same time as your student.
How to Register for Orientation
Reigstration for family members to join in-person orientation sessions for first-year students can be found within the registration system for your student's orientation signup. If your student has not yet registered for an in-person orientation session, they can do so through their MavLINK account. Students can enter guest information after selecting a date for their orientation session.
If your student has already registered for an orientation session, they can add guests by selecting Change/Update My Orientation Session link within the orientation registration system in their MavLINK account.
Registration for in-person orientation dates closes one week prior to each session in order to provide our office adequate time to prepare for the event. If you need to make changes to your registration within one week of your orientation session, call our office at 402-554-2677 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Schedule for Orientation
The schedule for orientation is the same time as your student. For more information regarding the schedule for in-person orientation sessions, view the first-year student page.
