  • 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. 

    Save the dates!  Preregistration for Westbound Orientation dates will be open soon.
