First-year sudents who will begin their studies in the spring or summer will attend a one-day Orientation program a few weeks before classes begin.
After you have been admitted to Iowa and paid the $250 acceptance fee, you will be invited to go online to make your Orientation Program Reservation.
We begin accepting reservations a few months before each new semester. You will see only program dates for which you are eligible based on your major and enrollment date.
Accommodations for people with disabilities
Accommodations, including sign-language interpreters, are available to you or the person(s) accompanying you in order to participate in Orientation. Please call Orientation Services at 319-335-1497 at least 30 days in advance of your program to alert us to any special arrangements needed for your visit to campus. Please note that we are unable to provide English interpreters.
