New Student Orientation

Students walking around campus for student orientationTo 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 new 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 a 2014-2015 planner.

Due to the large number of students and staff involved, we cannot customize the schedule of activities, including advising, for individuals.

For students starting classes Fall 2014 Orientation will be available on the following dates:
