Join us for a brand-new Orientation experience!

Visit our Move-in and Welcome Events page for information and next steps for getting started at USciences. 

Orientation is the best opportunity for you to become familiar with USciences and your future classmates. 

While there may be challenges that keep us from physically getting together this year, we’ve created new and personalized experiences, both virtually and in-person, to get you connected and to feel more comfortable.  

This brand-new Orientation experience will include a set of virtual events scheduled over the summer and will culminate with an on-campus event

While these events are just for students, there will also be several separate virtual events just for parents and families!

And be sure to bookmark this Orientation webpage and follow @usciences_Orientation on Instagram. We will be making frequent updates, so these will be the go-to resources for these events. Any questions or concerns with registration, please contact your Admission counselor or

Information for Parents and Families

While we haven’t been able to host our usual parent/families sessions at Orientation, we are committed to providing all with all the information you need to be ready for the fall semester.

We’ve worked with our campus partners in Student Health Services, the Department of Public Safety, Financial Aid, and others, to craft videos, FAQs, and other materials to provide as much information in advance to help orient you and help you feel at ease.

Visit the Information for Parents and Families page for the specifics.

If you have any questions about any of the information here, or any other concerns about the fall start, please feel free to contact the admissions office or any of the specific departments listed here:
