Orientation: Welcome to Iowa!

First year students admitted for fallTransfer studentsInternational students

Orientation is required for all new Iowa students. During orientation, you will register for your first semester of classes, meet your academic advisor, and learn about many helpful campus resources.  

After you have been admitted to Iowa and paid the $250 acceptance fee, you will be invited to go online through your Admissions Profile on the Iowa Student Information System (ISIS) to register for an orientation program.

Orientation reservations become available a few months before each new semester, which is when you will be able to register for a program. You will only see program dates for which you are eligible based on your major.
