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 for your 2-day online orientation experience.

Students need to complete the Orientation Tile on MyUI at least 7 days prior to your orientation date. Find out more about all of the steps for online orientation here. On Day 1 of your orientation program, you will attend a small group session at 9:00 am or 11:00 am CST (1 hour). On Day 2, you will meet with your advisor and register for classes (1 hour). You must attend both days to be eligible to register for classes, which will occur with your advisor on Day 2.

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. The webinar schedule will be updated in May.

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.
