About New Student Orientation

All newly admitted Finlandia University students with 24 or fewer college credits (obtained post-high school graduation) are required to participate in the full four-day New Student Orientation program and enroll in the one-credit course, UNS 115 - Sisu Seminar. Newly-admitted transfer students with 25 or more college credits (obtained post-high school graduation) are expected to attend the New Student Orientation only on Monday, August 19, 2013.

The orientation program gives new students opportunities to:

  • Learn about academic programs and university services
  • Meet faculty, staff, and students
  • Participate in activities designed to acquaint new students with the campus and its community

The Sisu Seminar introduces students to the goals of a university education, the skills needed for university success, and the programs, services, and facilities available.

Orientation programs are conducted at the start of the fall and spring semesters.
