Welcome to USU Eastern!

The online New Student Orientation process contains five modules. To deliver the correct information at exactly the right time, Module 1 and 2 will open three weeks before registration. Modules 3, 4, and 5 will be completed right before and during your first few weeks at USU Eastern. The modules will help prepare you for college and give you the tools needed to be successful.

If you are still unsure if you are attending USU Eastern, we recommend that you begin the New Student Orientation and register for classes as if you are attending. It is very easy to drop classes before the semester begins. Module 1 explains how drop classes.
