Iowa Orientation

Welcome to Orientation Services!

We look forward to working with you as you begin at the University of Iowa. Orientation is required for all new first-year and transfer students. During orientation programs, you will meet your academic advisor and classmates, learn about helpful campus resources, and register for your first semester of classes.

After you have been admitted to Iowa and paid the $250 acceptance fee, you will be invited to go online through your Admission Profile on MyUI to register for an orientation program.

Orientation reservations become available a few months before each new semester. You will only see program dates available to you based on your major and advisor availability.


Please check your orientation program date prior to looking at the schedule (you can find this on your Admission Profile on MyUI). Orientation Programs in December and January for spring semester admitted students are 1-day programs.
