Our mission...

New Student Orientation at Utah Valley University facilitates the successful academic and personal transition of new students, and those who support them, into the UVU community. Through an inclusive and intentional process of related programs and activities, Orientation will familiarize students with the tools and resources available to help them achieve their academic goals, contribute fully to the social and cultural climate of the university, and understand the student responsibilities associated with completing their education.

We encourage you to contact us whenever you have a question or need additional assistance. We are here to help you!
