New Student Orientation

We’re excited that you’ve chosen Dixie State University, and we’re looking forward to meeting you at orientation. Orientation is an interactive program designed for all new Dixie State students and their families and is required for all new freshmen students. Our number one goal is to help each of you experience a stress-free transition to college while introducing you to our great institution.

What Happens at Orientation?

  • Take a tour with an Orientation Leader
  • Meet new friends and campus staff and faculty

Before you come to Orientation, we want to make sure you are registered for your classes. Spring registration for new students opens Thursday, November 16, and we want you to get the classes you need.

In order to register for your classes, you will first need to go through our Online Pre-Orientation Course. The Online Pre-Orientation is a series of modules designed to provide you with the information you need to start your trail toward success here at Dixie State University. After going through the modules, you will be directed to your academic advisor who will help you identify the classes you need.
