New Student Orientation

Congratulations on becoming an integral member of the College of Professional Studies community. Near the beginning of the fall and spring terms, the Office of Academic Advising invites new students to attend an orientation session at the Boston campus. Winter and Summer Orientation is only available in the online format.

Doctor of Education and Doctorate in Law and Policy students have a separate orientation program. A representative will contact these students individually. 

Graduate Programs in Education have a separate orientation. To request access select this link. Please email if you have issues requesting access. You will not be able to use your Husky email address to log in, but any other email address (for example, a Gmail or Yahoo account) will be sufficient.
