You'll register for your courses with your faculty advisor, set up your OCU email address, meet other incoming students, and so much more! All incoming students will then attend New Student Orientation at the beginning of their first semester.
Move In Day will be August 13th, and New Student Orientation will take place August 15th-16th with the first day of classes on the 17th. Students will enjoy Alpha Week activities hosted by the Student Involvement Council in the evenings. Full schedule will be available closer to these dates!
