New Graduate Student Orientation

Welcome, we are excited to have you join our College of Nursing (CON) family. Orientation provides you with the information you need to make the most of your CON experience.

After completion of the admissions application, all new students are required to complete Student Orientation to become familiar with college life, understand what is expected from you as a student, and learn about college programs and services that will help you succeed in college. 

The orientation will take approximately 2 hours to complete. We encourage you to carefully review each section of the orientation as it will provide you with valuable information to help you succeed in college.

Note: you must close the current section before opening the next to prevent the videos from playing over the top of each other.
