New Student Orientation

All new degree-seeking first-time Colorado freshmen are required to attend a Student Orientation program in order to register for their first semester courses. Although not required, new degree-seeking transfer and out-of-state students are strongly encouraged to attend as well. Information regarding Student Orientation will be mailed to students upon notification of acceptance and also can be found on the Colorado Mesa University Orientation website.

For proper academic advising and course placement, new students with low ACT or SAT scores must be assessed with a second instrument prior to a Student Orientation session. The instrument is called ACCUPLACER, and the student’s ACT or SAT sub scores determine whether or not ACCUPLACER testing is necessary. To schedule an assessment, or for more information please contact the Testing Center, 970.248.1260.
