New Student Orientation and Onboarding Experience

Welcome to the KU Edwards Campus! Whether you are completing an undergraduate degree or beginning a master’s program, the orientation and onboarding programs provide an opportunity for you to complete critical new student steps prior to your first day of classes. Students are expected to attend to ensure they are prepared and have a successful start at KU.

Your academic success coach will add you to the RSVP list. Check your email frequently for the next steps. Orientation is focused on your individual success. Through the RSVP process, you will be asked to complete a confidence inventory that ensures your orientation experience is aligned to meet your learning needs.

If you have not received your invitation via email, contact your academic success coach today.

NOTE: KU Edwards Students do NOT need to attend Transfer Orientation in Lawrence unless otherwise directed. See your advisor for questions.
