All new and readmitted students are required to participate in a BBN Orientation. Registration for BBN Orientation is on a first-come, first-served basis. 

BBN Orientations for fall 2021 freshmen are open now for registration.

More date options for Virtual and Planned In-Person BBN Orientations will be added by February 15. Register for a virtual Orientation now and complete your Tuition Pre-payment and Orientation Fee to confirm your spot!

You can change your option to a different virtual date or to an in-person option when they're added by February 15.

Is my orientation online?

You will see either Virtual or Planned In-person after the name of your BBN Orientation.

Planned In-person means that we're planning to offer that date's orientation in-person. Planned in-person orientations will still require you to complete online programming in advance of your date.

Can't see the date you're looking for?

Orientations are open for registration on a first-come, first-served basis. To ensure the best advising experience possible, we work with colleges to set capacities for individual dates. 

If you don't see your first choice date, please select a different date. We do not operate with a waitlist, but if date becomes available, it'll appear in your myUK portal again.
