Sister Diana @uc_pres   Whatever our vocation-married, single or religious-we have the opportunity every day to be faithful. It can be thankless but do it anyway.

This program will serve as your overview of academics at Ursuline College. On this day, you will learn about our core curriculum, called the Ursuline Studies Program, as well as specific requirements for your major. You will meet with an academic advisor with whom you will select your classes for the fall, register for them and attend other sessions that will promote your academic success at Ursuline. You will also have the opportunity to meet some current Ursuline students and other new students. Plus you will leave the event with your Ursuline student ID so make sure you are camera ready!

Parents/Guardians are also welcome at this event! They can attend specific sessions just for them and meet Ursuline staff members who can support you as you begin your journey at Ursuline. When you submit your RSVP, please indicate if your parents/guardians will be joining you at the event.

Please note:
  • If you were informed in your admission letter that you need to take placement testing, please contact Jill Carroll at 440-449-2049 to make an appointment. This needs to be done before you can attend orientation.
  • Students who have not deposited before their Academic Orientation date will not be registered for classes until their deposit has been received.  Deposits should be mailed to Robin Smith in the Admission office or you can submit it right now at www.ursuline.edu/deposit.  Please call her at 440-646-8365 if you have questions.
  • All athletes who play volleyball, soccer, cross country, basketball and golf are required to have their physicals at 9:15 a.m. in Pilla 217 on June 11, 2015 so they may want to choose June 11th for Academic Orientation which begins at 11:00 a.m. that day.
  • If you live out-of-state and it's too far to drive to the college, you will be contacted by phone and/or email by URSA, the office that coordinates Academic Orientation to make alternate arrangements. 
If you have any questions, please contact Jill at jcarroll@ursuline.edu or 440-449-2049 or Sr. Virginia at vdevinne@ursuline.edu or 440-684-6018

In addition to Academic Orientation, there are two 
Fall Orientation sessions are provided for specific student groups. Students will register for the appropriate Fall Orientation while on campus for Academic Orientation sessions throughout the summer.

Fall Orientation: Adult Session

This session is for any new student over the age of 21 and any transfer student, regardless of age, who is transferring more than 38 credits. Second Degree Accelerated Nursing students attend a different Orientation provided by the nursing department.

The program is designed with the adult student in mind, including the essentials to help prepare you for academic success. Other students will be on hand to share insight and advice. You will learn more about campus resources, network with administrators, participate in a Welcome Ceremony and have the opportunity to find classrooms.

Free child care is provided if needed.

This session is mandatory for all traditional-aged new students and transfer students who are both under 21 and transferring 38 credits or less.  

A team of upperclass Orientation Arrows will lead you through activities, social events and sessions to begin your immersion into college life. Most importantly you will begin making friends and gain important knowledge to start classes at Ursuline as a successful student.
