UVI New Student Orientation Set for Aug. 9 to 14

Orientation and registration for new and transfer students attending the University of the Virgin Islands will be held from Aug. 9-14, on the St. Thomas and St. Croix campuses. All newly matriculated students are required to participate in orientation.

The orientation process is designed to enhance students' academic and social adjustment to college life. There will be activities to acquaint students with rules and regulations of the University, to allow students to explore the campuses, and for students to network among themselves. Students will also meet faculty advisors to develop their class schedules and register for Fall semester classes.

Orientation includes dormitory check-in, placement testing, class registration, island tours and social events. Students will be officially welcomed by UVI administrators. There will also be activities for the parents of new students.
Fall Semester classes begin on Monday Aug. 17, on both campuses. See a partial list of Orientation Week activities below. For a complete orientation schedules visit the UVI website at www.uvi.edu.
