Virtual Orientation Schedule

Fall 2021 Incoming Student Orientation Site

Sample Virtual Orientation Schedule

Students should plan to be available from 8:30am-4:30pm on their selected Orientation date. (Students must register for an Orientation date through their Truman portal.) Students will receive an email within the week prior to their session with their schedule designating either an AM or PM block, access links, and detailed information. These are intentionally chosen based on number of students and intended major; for this reason, you may not request an AM or PM session.
