UAB’s orientation program is required for all new students (freshmen, transfer, or non-traditional), so you should plan for it early. Blazer Beginnings gives you a chance to meet other new students, learn about support services, and get help registering for classes. Keep in mind that signing up for an earlier orientation session will mean earlier registration, which means a better chance of getting the classes you want. The size of each session is limited in order to allow your advisor and other campus reps to work closely with you.
For students entering in Spring, Summer, or Fall 2022, some orientation sessions will be offered virtually and some will be offered on campus. Find more information tailored to you by clicking the appropriate icon below.
