First-Year Registration and Orientation, Summer 2019
In this Section
We're happy you will be joining us this fall! Your next step is to attend First-Year Registration and Orientation:
Orientation is a required program which includes class registration, meeting your first-year advisor, getting your Stout BlueCard and laptop, and connecting with other UW-Stout students.
Parents/guardians are welcome, but not required, to attend. Each student will receive two meal tickets (1 student+1 guest). Any additional guests will need to purchase their meal tickets the day of the program.
Parents/guardians will attend informational sessions on college transition, financial aid and tuition, campus safety and dining services.
Before attending First-Year Registration and Orientation please complete the following steps:
Step 1) Register to attend First-Year Registration and Orientation
You will receive an invitation via e-mail in mid-March to select a date to attend orientation.
Check your personal calendar for other commitments and select a date when you are able to attend the full program (8:00 am - 4:00 pm). Leaving early is not an option. If you cannot attend the full day you will be asked to reschedule.
A calendar showing First-Year Registration and Orientation dates can be found here. You will still need to register for a date via the e-mail invitation sent in mid-March.
