Orientation

Congratulations! We are very excited that you have chosen to join the Ashland University family! We have a great orientation program planned for you this year as you begin your academic adventure here at Ashland University.

New Student Orientation is a key component to assisting you with your transition to university life! This program is designed to acquaint you with campus services, staff that can assist you with taking care of business such as finalizing loans and peer mentors to answer your questions.

At Ashland University, Orientation is a mandatory two-part process which includes attending a Summer Drive-In Program as well as participating in Orientation Weekend right before classes begin.

Part I: Summer Drive-In Program

Select one of the five Summer Drive-In programs to attend.  Students and parents are invited to drive into town for a one-day program that will help prepare you for fall semester. You will have the opportunity to take care of business, learn about campus services such as Student Accounts, Financial Aid steps and involvement opportunities as well as ask faculty, staff and upper-class students questions. At check-in, a copy of your Fall Class Schedule will be provided if all of your online enrollment forms (pre-registration, financial aid, housing) are completed.
