Reservations, Fees and Check-in

It is important that you make your reservations for your Bearcats Bound Orientation early. Some sessions fill quickly and reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. If you delay, you may not get your first choice. 

Online Reservation

  1. Before making a reservation, you must set up your Central Login Service (CLS) username and complete the information on your Bearcats Bound Card.   If you have completed this step, enter your CLS (Central Login Service) username and password on the login page.

  2. Once logged in, at the top of the page, click on the “Orientation Registration” tab.

  3. Select a set of dates from the drop down list; some majors may only have one set of dates.
  4. Make sure that you correctly enter the Parent/Guest information. Uncheck the box labeled “Attending” if your parents are not attending, otherwise you will overpay your orientation fees.
  5. Complete the online form and enter payment information. You may pay for orientation by check (electronically), credit card or debit card. PLEASE NOTE: The system will not allow registration unless you pay your Orientation fee by completing the payment section.

    You may make changes to your reservation online. However, keep in mind that reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis and if you are making date changes, the desired dates may fill up very quickly.
