New Student Orientation

Orientation 2019 team

Welcome to the Mariner Family!

New Student Orientation is a one-day, in-person experience targeted for new and transfer students enrolling in the Fall 2021 semester. This is an opportunity to connect with your future classmates, prepare for academic and campus life, and learn how to navigate campus prior to the start of classes.

After registering for orientation, you will receive an email confirming your reservation and a link to the “Mariner Bound Orientation” module. Or you can access here. This module will introduce you to resources and websites you will use as an MCU student that we will cover at New Student Orientation. Please complete the module before you come for the in-person experience on August 20, 2021. The module will be made available by August 2, 2021. Please note the online portion of New Student Orientation is required for incoming MCU students enrolling for the Fall 2021 semester.
