New Student Orientation
We are excited that you have chosen the University of Northern Iowa for the next step in your journey and can't wait to welcome you to the Panther Family!
During your orientation, you will:
- meet with an academic advisor
- register for classes
- spend time with your orientation leader
- gain access to information about essential campus resources
We’re looking forward to providing you a customized orientation experience along with learning more about your goals and interests.
Students Starting Fall 2023
Orientation is required for all incoming students and attendance at all scheduled programming is required in order to be eligible to register for classes.
Orientation registration for students starting fall 2023 is now LIVE!
You must accept your offer of admission to be able to sign up for orientation.
Orientation is the first step in your transition to joining the Panther Family! At orientation you will meet other new Panthers, connect with current students and staff, learn about campus life and resources, activate your UNI email account and most importantly register for classes.
Your second step is participating in Panther Welcome events the Wednesday - Friday the week before classes start fall or the weekend before classes start in the spring. During this time you will make new friends, learn how to navigate campus and eLearning, discover opportunities to get involved, and have FUN!
The third part of your transition is getting to know returning students and participate in student life. During this time you will explore the Cedar Valley, take you first day of class photos, engage in fun activities and make memories!
