Accepted Student Webinar

Now that you've been accepted to UWA, join us for a special event to celebrate your big achievement! Our Accepted Student Webinar is an exclusive event for students who have been accepted to UWA.

During this Accepted Student Webinar, you'll have the chance to chat with current students, faculty, and alumni. This is your opportunity to learn what is next for you as an accepted student and learn firsthand what student life is like here in Livingston. 

Your Accepted Student Webinar would not be complete without time in your academic major. During these hour-long sessions, you will go over what to expect as a first-year student in our various academic areas.  You will hear more about the curriculum, majors and minors, classroom and outside opportunities, and the tremendous advising support you will receive during your entire time at UWA! Plus we will leave plenty of time for questions.
