Orientation Fees

Student orientation fees are included in The OHIO Guarantee™. Family members and guests participating in orientation programs happening in a remote format will not be charged a fee. 

Sign up for your orientation session

When signing up for your session, you will choose an available date and also sign up any family members or guests who will participate in orientation with you. Students are required to participate in all sessions that are part of the program in order to register for classes at orientation, so be sure to select dates where you will be able to fully participate in all elements of the program. 

First-year Students are eligible to sign up for their specific orientation session after they have successfully completed their housing contract and paid their deposit or completed an exemption waiver. The automated process can take up to 48 hours from the time the housing deposit is received or an exemption is processed for a student to be able to access the BSO system to sign up for an orientation date.  

Transfer Students are eligible to sign up for their orientation session once they have officially been admitted to Ohio University.
