The Mission of Student Orientation

Our top priority is to support you in a successful academic and social transition to the UC Blue Ash community. The purpose of our orientation is to introduce new students and their families to the quality academics, resources and community fostered at UC Blue Ash College. Orientation is the catalyst to support your transition to our institution by preparing you for the academic rigor, personal responsibilities, and intellectual, cultural and social climate of our campus.

What Is New Student Orientation?

UC Blue Ash will offer several orientation programs between April-May for summer semester and between May-August for the fall semester.  All first-year students are required to attend one of these 4-hour orientation programs.  During orientation, we will introduce new students and their families to faculty, staff and current students.  You will learn about the ‘business of being a student’, how to be successful in and out of the classroom, and will work with the advising staff to register for your first semester of college classes.
