Advising/Orientation Programs

There are multiple IntroDUCKtions throughout the year for incoming freshman, transfer students, and international students.

All of our programs provide:

  • An introduction to general academic and graduation requirements.
  • The opportunity to meet one-on-one with an advisor who will help you select classes for the upcoming term and clarify the registration process
  • A Student Handbook
  • Information about registration on DuckWeb.
  • Your PIN number for registration. The PIN number will be required to register for your first term at the university. Remember, you must attend an orientation session before receiving a PIN number and attempting to register.
