Starting at a new university is a big transition, whether you are coming to us directly from high school, transferring from another institution, or beginning your college career later in life. For this reason, we require that all new students complete an orientation prior to beginning at the University.
There are several steps you should take to prepare for the Fall 2022 semester.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
This program is specifically for students who are coming to Madonna right from high school or home school environments. Students coming to Madonna University directly from high school are part of our First-Year Experience program, which guides them through a series of events intended to ease the transition to the University. Students are required to attend an orientation program during the summer prior to starting at the institution.
We are currently working to provide students a robust orientation program that will bring students to campus to meet new people, see what campus life is all about, and make connections to campus! Students will be scheduling classes while at their orientation session.
On-ground Orientation will work to connect you to the Madonna campus, help you meet new classmates, and connect with on-campus resources, faculty, and staff. Our FYE Peer Mentors (students who have successfully completed at least one year at Madonna already) will spend the entirety of rrientation with you and lead you through the program. At orientation, you will be introduced to our wide range of academic, social, and service-learning opportunities. You will register for your first semestr of classes while at orientation. You also will learn about other First-Year events and programs designed to answer your questions and help you achieve academic success.
All new, direct from high school students are required to attend an on-ground, interactive Orientation. An overnight stay for students is required as part of your New Student Orientation. During New Student Orientation, you will attend sessions that familiarize you with Madonna University's Campus.

As you begin this new chapter of your life, the support of loved ones can help ensure your success. We will be hosting parent/guardian sessions during our on-ground New Student Orientation dates, so you will be able to have them join you to experience campus and hear from a variety of offices on campus that are here to help you acheive academic success.
Parents/Guardians are not required to come to campus for orientation, however we will
have parent-specific sessions available during the day on both Monday and Tuesday
they can attend. If your parent/guardian is in attendance with you, they are welcome
to come to all three meals and dine with us!
The Financial Aid parent session will be at 4:00 pm on the first day of Orientation, and Financial Aid staff will be available after dinner on Monday for your parents to ask any questions they may have!
Adult and Transfer Students have two options to cover the requirement of attending orientation:
We tailor our Adult and Transfer Student Orientation program to your needs. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, connect with other students, and learn about campus resources. Take advantage of this time to become familiar with our campus, academic advisors, financial aid officers, student life representatives, career services, and other Madonna staff who are available to help you.
Adult and Transfer Student Orientation sessions are scheduled on an individual basis. Please contact our office at email@example.com to set up your personal session!
If you prefer to complete orientation from the comfort of your home, you can complete our convenient online orientation! Two weeks after you have been admitted to the University you will receive your My Portal/Blackboard login information from the Registrar's office through the mail. This will include your student ID number. You will need to sign in to our orientation program using your first and last name, and your student ID number.
