Orientation Task List

Once you have been admitted to UConn and paid your enrollment fee, there is a list of tasks that you must complete before you can begin your first semester. Some tasks must be completed before you can register for Orientation. Other tasks are completed after attending Orientation. 

Your task list will be organized and personalized for you in our new student onboarding portal.

Failure to complete the required tasks within the stated timeframes could result in holds being placed on your account, inability to register for courses, admission being revoked, etc.
