New Student Orientation

Congratulations on becoming an integral member of the College of Professional Studies community. Near the beginning of the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms, the Office of Academic & Student Support Services invites new students to attend an orientation session.

All new students attending the Boston Orientation will have an opportunity to meet other students and learn more about being a student at the College of Professional Studies.

Note: Doctor of Education and Doctorate in Law and Policy students have a separate orientation program. It is not necessary to attend this orientation program.

Online Orientation - Available Starting Monday, August 25

Whether taking classes online or on campus, all new students are expected to complete the online orientation. If you are accepted close to or after August 25, please allow 3 to 5 business days for your access to be activated. All student who have access will receive an email inviting them to access and complete - if you have not received an email you do not have access yet. An example of this email can be found here as well as instructions on how to access this resource.

Students report it takes roughly 60 to 90 minutes to complete the online orientation.
