Session Dates

Congratulations, and Welcome to Catamount Country! You are now a member of the University of Vermont community, and we are so happy to have you.

So you’re in, what’s next? The answer is simple—attend a UVM Orientation Session! We offer immersive Orientation Sessions to get you ready and excited to be a part of our community. During these sessions, you will connect with university staff members, register for classes, make friends, and learn more about resources available on campus, as well as ways to get involved.

Orientation is free for students.  While students learn about life at UVM, family members can also attend the program (fees vary). Learn more about your particular Orientation Program below:
