As a new Owens student, you must attend New Student Orientation. New Student Orientation is an opportunity for you to visit campus, talk with Owens staff, and learn about the offices that will aid you in your educational journey. Sessions last approximately 2-3 hours.
New Student Orientation is required of all new, degree and certificate seeking students.
If you are a transfer student, you must successfully transfer nine (9) credit hours to Owens to be exempt from orientation.
If you are a guest or transient student, you may not be required to attend New Student Orientation. If you have questions, please contact your academic advisor.
Orientation is for the student only. No family members, friends, or guests may attend the session unless authorized by the Orientation Team.
