Part One is a one-day orientation held during the summer months from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.. Students are encouraged to select the earliest orientation date that their schedule allows.
During this component, you will:
- Be introduced to your school/college
- Meet with your assigned academic adviser and register for classes
- Learn about university policies, resources and your OU accounts
- Meet other new students and have fun!
