Students will log in multiple times throughout the day for their online orientation experience. First year from high school students will log in 3 times throughout the day and transfer students will login 4 times during the day. We ask that students be available 8:00AM-4:30PM on the day of their online orientation session. Students will get their personalized schedule one week before their orientation with the specific times they will need to login throughout their orientation day.
Student will login for the following parts of the orientation day:

During this session students will learn about their academic requirements at UNI. Academic advisors will review academic policies, course selection and how students can best work with their advisor for academic success.
Registration and Individual Advising
Here students will meet one-on-one with an academic advisor for 45 minutes. This is when they finalize their class schedule for the fall and address any questions you have about their specific academic plan. This time is all about setting students up to be academically successful at UNI.
During this session students will learn how to access their UNI email account and utilize UNI’s online learning platform. We will also show students where to find their book list and navigate their myUNIverse.
Making new friends and connecting with peers is an integral part of your student’s college experience. During this student-led session students will learn about ways to get involved on campus, ask questions about what it means to be a Panther and talk about ways to be an active member of the Panther Family.
