BBN Orientation Checklist
Online Orientation Hold
You'll see an Online Orientation Hold placed on your account after registering for orientation. It will be lifted on the day of your orientation, as long as you've completed the required Canvas modules in advance of your orientation.
Complete these ASAP
✔️ Students joining us in the UK Class of 2025 should review this "What's Next!" checklist.
✔️ Visit go.uky.edu/m365 to check your UK email. Your email address to log in is email@example.com (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org).
✔️ Some of our placement tests require you to complete practice modules, so begin this process as soon as possible. Learn more at orientation.uky.edu/placement-testing.
✔️ Major change requests must be submitted at least 14 days weeks prior to your orientation date. Learn more about major changes.

✔️ Be on the lookout for any information from your college to your UK email address. Some colleges may require you to complete some online modules or forms before your BBN Orientation. More details can be found in your BBN Orientation Canvas course (for both in-person and virtual BBNOs).
