Congratulations on your decision to attend Utah State University Eastern! We are excited for you to join our Eagle family.
New Student Orientation is a required five-module process that runs through your first semester at USU Eastern. It is designed to help prepare you for college and give you relevant information when you need it most. Online orientation can be found at usueastern.edu/orientation.
First Year Students
After you complete the first two orientation modules, you will need to meet with an academic advisor to register for classes. Module 2 will explain everything you need to know and do prior to visiting with your academic advisor.
In addition to the online orientation, you will be invited to register and attend an in-person "Welcome to USU Eastern" celebration. This day is held the Friday before fall classes begin, and your academic advisor will help you register for the 1-credit elective class. See First Year Experience.
If you are transferring from another college or university, you will complete the first two orientation modules, then meet with an academic advisor to register for classes. Module 2 will explain everything you need to know prior to visiting with an academic advisor.
Living on-campus means more sleep, friends, and better grades. While others are driving or walking to campus, you are getting those precious extra minutes of sleep or studying. You get to make new friends and hang out with roommates. On-campus housing is a community of support, assistance, and activities. For more information, visit Housing & Residence Life.
Earning a degree is an investment that will shape the rest of your life. Remember that you don’t have to pay tuition in one lump sum, there are online payment plans and plenty of free resources to help. Be sure to ask questions, apply for scholarships, and invest in yourself.
