  • Meet fellow new students
  • Attend small group workshops
  • Receive necessary forms and documents
  • Meet program faculty
  • Get their Mountwest ID
  • Take a tour of campus
  • And much more!

Once admitted, students should complete their CAP assessment and participate in advising to develop their class schedule.

Each orientation session is by reservation only. Due to seating capacity, students must be pre-registered to attend.
