Spring 2022 Incoming Students

The New Student Orientation process contains five modules* (see descriptions below). To deliver the correct information at the right time, module one opens in October, and module five will be completed during your first semester at USU. Modules two, three, and four will help you register for classes, prepare to begin at USU, and give you final reminders before you arrive on campus. The fifth module will give you information that is relevant once you have started your first semester.

Incoming students can register for spring 2022 classes starting in a few months, based on earned credit hours on your Utah State transcript. Module two will tell you everything you need to know and do prior to registration (you will have a registration hold until you complete module two).

If you are still unsure if you are attending Utah State University, we recommend that you begin New Student Orientation, and register for classes as if you are attending. It is very easy to get a refund of your orientation fee, and to drop classes if you decide not to attend.

Mission or Military Service
Students on a leave for mission or military service can catch up with all modules when they return, even if that is very close to the start of the semester. Parents and delegates who will be helping these students register for classes can go through the orientation, as needed. If you are leaving for or returning from a leave, check out the tutorials at https://www.usu.edu/sots/loa/ before continuing with orientation.
