New Student Programs welcomes and supports first-year and transfer students at UVM

New Student Programs encompasses orientation as well as first year experience programs and resources, including first year and transfer orientations, signature opening weekend events, coordinated initiatives such as Growth Mindset and Spring Start, and more.

At Orientation new students learn about life on campus, meet with academic advisors, and make friends before starting their first semester. Orientation is mandatory for incoming first-year students and strongly encouraged for transfer students.
