The materials may be requested in their entirety or individually for use in First Year Experience Courses or to develop custom student orientation courses for colleges, campuses, academic units, and online programs.
Please Note: The Office of Continuing and Distance Education (OCDE) will maintain a list of changes to the student orientation learning modules in a publicly available Knowledge Base article. You may request updated materials by submitting a request via this service.
