ECST Freshmen College Orientation

College of ECST Orientation for Incoming Freshmen

Incoming freshmen in the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology (ECST) are required to attend a two-day orientation consisting of one orientation offered by the University's New Student and Parent Programs office and one orientation offered by the College of ECST.

1. University Orientation - The Golden Eagle (GE) Orientation is organized by the University's New Student and Parent Programs office. Only students who paid the Enrollment Confirmation Deposit (ECD) by the deadline, May 1st, will be invited to register for a Fall 2018 orientation on specific dates designated to each college. Make sure to follow the instructions to register. The university REQUIRES that all students attend the GE Orientation.

2. College Orientation - The College of ECST offers a separate college orientation for incoming freshmen students centered around the programs and services offered by the college. The college orientation is usually held one or a couple of days before each GE Orientation. You DO NOT need to register for the ECST College Orientation separately. Once you register for one of the GE Orientations, we will expect you to attend the corresponding College Orientation as indicated below.
