ACCESS Orientation

What is the ACCESS Orientation Program?

The ACCESS Orientation Program provides an in-person experience for incoming freshmen that will make the transition to college less overwhelming. The program aims to provide information on MSU colleges and schools, financial aid information (including FAFSA), placement testing, academic advisement, career development, and student experience!

Additionally, students will participate in activities and workshops outlining college transition, school spirit, study skills, and time management strategies. Participation in this program provides activities and interactions with faculty, professional staff, and classmates. Our goal is to provide an early opportunity for incoming freshmen to become familiar with their university resources, making them fully prepared for their college journey.

It is expected that at the end of the ACCESS Orientation Program students will have all the necessary tools and resources required for their Fall enrollment at the University. The ACCESS Orientation Program pledges to increase access to college for a diverse student population, prepare students for their college matriculation, and provide a head start for students on the path to academic success. It is expected that incorporating best practices for our campus-wide ACCESS Orientation Program for freshmen will yield outstanding results for the entire undergraduate student population.
