Orientation is the first step designed to assist you in making a comfortable transition to life at UMSL. Orientation is a requirement for all newly, admitted, degree-seeking, undergraduate students. It must be completed prior to your first day of classes. More information will be sent to via email of next steps.

Triton Leaders will serve as hosts and share their experiences with new students. Administrators and faculty will also be present throughout the day outlining expectations, resources, helping you build your student success network, and provide guidance about your educational experience.
