Spring 2023 Students

Complete Module 5

Summer/Fall 2023 Incoming Students

The New Student Orientation process contains five modules that are designed to give you relevant information at the correct time. Module one opens in February, and module five will be completed during your first semester at USU.

Incoming students can register for classes in April based on earned credit hours (this link goes to archived catalog) on their Utah State transcript, but all incoming students have a registration hold and must complete module two prior to registering for classes.

If you are still unsure if you are attending Utah State University, we recommend that you begin New Student Orientation and register for classes as if you will be attending. It is easy to get a refund of your orientation fee, and to drop classes if you decide not to attend.

Mission or Military Service
Students on a leave for mission or military service can catch up with all modules when they return, even if that is very close to the start of the semester. Parents and delegates who will be helping these students register for classes can go through the orientation, as needed. If you are leaving for or returning from a leave, check out the tutorials at https://www.usu.edu/retention/nol/ before continuing with orientation.
