Undergraduate Orientation

Welcome to your first year

Congratulations on your acceptance to IU Southeast! We want you to be successful in college, so all new students are required to attend the New Student Orientation program prior to beginning classes at IU Southeast. Orientation is the first step in your transition to IU Southeast.

You will partner with knowledgeable students, faculty, and staff who will guide you through your orientation. The program will help you discover and learn about the many resources that IU Southeast has to offer. You will also meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, and learn about everything you will need to know for your first semester. 

Remember, orientation is all about answering your questions—so, along the way, never hesitate to ask!

Orientation registration for fall admits is now open!
