Welcome, Hawkeyes!

We are excited to help you transition to the University of Iowa through our 2-part orientation. 

Part 1: Online orientation, academic advising, and course registration (required for all new students).

Students need to complete the pre-advising modules and placement tests in the Orientation Tile on MyUI at least 7 days prior to your orientation week. You will then be able to select a date and time during your orientation week for up to a 1 hour appointment with your academic advisor who will help you select and register for classes. 

Part 2: Becoming a Hawkeye on campus experience (optional).

Students and parents are invited to join us on campus to learn about resources, explore campus and Iowa City, and meet staff and fellow new Hawkeyes. Choose a date after your online course registration week (if it works in your schedule).

Summer Webinar Series: Not able to join us on campus? We will have opportunities to learn about resources and meet staff and other new students through our summer webinar series. If you miss a session, you can find the recorded sessions later on the Orientation YouTube site. The webinar schedule will be available starting in May.

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