Orientation Reservations - Incoming Summer/Fall 2015 Students

There are two different orientation programs for students new to IU South Bend. Any required placement exams (English and/or math) must be completed PRIOR to reserving for orientation. Click here for exam reservations.

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION (full day program; 9:00a - 4:00p)
You will attend this program if you are either of the following:

  • First-time college student
  • Transfer student with less than 26 credit hours (freshman standing)

Registration for classes for the above students takes place during orientation, so it is to your advantage to attend the earliest possible orientation. Seating is limited for each orientation and reservations will close 1 week prior to each orientation (or earlier, if full).
