New Students Orientation: 1st week of the semester. All new students are required to attend all the orientation events during the week so that they can:
The Orientation activities help students transit more smoothly into their new campus life. Parents, sponsors and guardians are expected to attend the first day of orientation in order to familiarize themselves with university policies and regulations that will affect their children/wards.
During this time, they gain information about fee structures and payment, course units, how to access their children’s/ward registration and grade information online, what faculty expect of students and how to support their children during their university lives. Parents also have the opportunity to seek clarifications about various issues that will impact on the student’s education in the university. It is therefore advisable that all first time USIU students’ parents attend the orientation session scheduled for them.
Graduate Orientation programs are held separately and focus on the needs of the new graduate students. All new students (undergraduates and graduates) are advised to attend all scheduled orientation sessions. They must also ensure that they acquire and sign for flash disks that contain the University Catalogue, Student Handbook and other useful regulations.
