New Student Orientation (Bobcat Onboard)

Once you officially confirm your enrollment and become a Bobcat, you’ll be able to register for a mandatory on-campus Bobcat Onboard orientation session! New student orientation is an important part of becoming an STU student and will make sure you are ready to start classes. During Bobcat Onboard, you’ll receive your class schedule, meet with financial aid and academic advisors, get your student ID and parking pass, and meet fellow future Bobcats!
