Orientation Schedule and Website

Be sure to check out the Orientation schedule and the Orientation website for information on the schedule of events, to-do lists, FAQ, and important information for your parents and family members.

Orientation Expectations

All students are expected to attend all Orientation sessions to prepare for the first day of class. We have consolidated the schedule into PST afternoons to do our best to accommodate students from different time zones. While you will be attending from home, please consider Orientation sessions as a “mini-course” on how to be a successful student at UP. Thus, we recommend planning your day so that you will remove any unnecessary distractions and be able to give your full attention to the material.

Orientation Text Support

If you have any questions about Orientation, send a text to 503.208.4025. Student coordinators will be answering your questions Wednesday August 19 - Friday August 21 from 1 - 5 p.m.
