The University of Indianapolis has several events and programs to introduce new students and their families to UIndy and to help students make a smooth transition to college life.

Freshman students who have never studied at another college or university will attend one of UIndy's Summer Registration Days for orientation. Transfer students, students who are coming to UIndy having already studied at another college or university, will attend one of UIndy's Transfer Orientation Days to receive important campus information. 

All new students are required and expected to attend Welcome Week events, during the week leading up to the start of classes. 

Register for Mid-Year Winter Orientation on Friday, January 13

If you are starting classes at UIndy in January 2017, make sure that you register for Orientation on Friday, January 13. Check-in will begin at 8:30am in Esch Hall, right outside the Office of Admissions, with the program beginning promptly at 9 a.m. You will have the opportunity to interact with a variety of departments and offices from across campus, throughout orientation! Before you leave, make sure you obtain your UIndy Student ID and your parking pass for the semester. Family members and guests are more than welcome to attend the program, but your attendance is considered mandatory. Students living on-campus will be able to move-in to their residence halls, directly following the program.

Registration is available here.
