We are the Region’s University. Fulfilling the Promise.

To help new students in their adjustment to the University, we provide a comprehensive Orientation program. Students are required to attend this important and exciting step into college life at Indiana University Northwest.  Your parents or spouse are encouraged to attend.

During your Orientation program you will have an opportunity to meet other students, get a few helpful hints on adjusting to college life, find out what faculty expect from you, and learn how you can make the most out of your college experience. You will also get your ID picture taken, find out about student activities, and, to help with your time management skills, you will receive an academic planner.

PLEASE NOTE:  These sessions are for students who are admitted and will be attending Indiana University Northwest.  If you are admitted to another Indiana University campus, visit your respective campus for information regarding New Student Orientation.
