New Student Registration and Orientation

Full-time, first-time freshmen and transfers entering the University are required to attend a one-day registration program. This event provides the student the opportunity to meet with faculty advisers, to register for classes, and to take care of many of the functional details such as obtaining an ID card, selecting a meal plan, and obtaining a parking pass. There are specific sessions for parents to attend to address the wide range of topics relative to the student’s college career.

Orientation is a required three-day program which occurs the weekend prior to the beginning of classes. It serves as an introduction to college life and provides the student with an overview of programs and services that are available. During Orientation weekend, new students, along with faculty and staff of The University of Findlay, volunteer at many local non-profit agencies, churches, and schools. The Orientation Service Project introduces all first-year students to the community while meeting the local community's needs at the same time.
