Welcome, Hawkeyes!

We are excited to help you transition to the University of Iowa through online orientation. This experience will walk you through the steps you need to complete in preparation of your academic advising and registration appointment with your advisor on your orientation date.

All students who have an orientation date should start the required Success at Iowa online course on Iowa Courses Online (ICON). The Getting Started and Plan Stage 1 are your first steps. Once you have completed these sections, you will be directed to the orientation tile in MyUI. All required steps must be completed at least 7 days prior to your orientation date. Find out more about all of the steps here

You should also review the online information sessions (include your parents and family in this step) and sign up for sessions that sound interesting and work in your schedule. If you miss a session, you can find the recorded sessions later on the Orientation YouTube site. Check out the full schedule and register for orientation webinars here

If you have any questions, please contact us at 319-335-1497 from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, or email orientation@uiowa.edu.
