  • New Student Orientation


    Beginning college is a new transition. Whether you are living on- or off-campus, you will take on new responsibilities, meet a variety of diverse people, and adjust to the academic demands of college life. To enhance your experience as a new student with the University of West Alabama, we offer a new student orientation each semester. Orientation is designed to inform you on all the essentials for becoming a UWA Tiger and gives you the opportunity to register for your first course schedule.

    All new undergraduate (freshmen and transfer) must participate in UWA Orientation before being allowed to enroll in academic courses or other UWA activities. 


    If you have signed up for early check-in please note that we will be checking in students and parents on June 22, 2016 from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm at the Student Union Building.

    If you are not registered for early check-in please see schedule above for check-in instructions.

    We are looking forward to having you on campus!
