Orientation

Bearcats Bound Orientation   

We are delighted you've chosen the University of Cincinnati as your new home, and we are confident you'll find your experience to be a remarkably rewarding one.

Our top priority is to assist you in making a successful academic and social transition into the Cincinnati community. For this reason, all new students are required to attend an orientation program before their first semester of classes. New first-year students will not be able to register for classes until they have attended orientation.

We encourage you to make the most of your orientation and set the foundation for a successful University of Cincinnati undergraduate experience.
