2. Read The Confirmation Email

Make sure to read your confirmation email for date, time, housing and testing information (Freshman only).

3. Complete U101

Check out the pre-orientation modules that we will give you access to online! All components will help prepare you for your session.

4. Upload Your Immunization Records 

In order to attend your A&O session, you are required to provide proof of measles immunity. Failure to do so will result in you being dropped from your session. 

5. Take Placement Testing (if required) 

If you registered for the Math Placement Test, please plan to check-in at Kane Hall from 8:45-9:00AM on Day 1 prior to the start of your 2-day A&O.

If you want to take Chemistry, be sure to complete the placement test before your A&O. 

Check to see if you need to take a placement test.

6. Come As You Are

Wear casual clothes and comfortable walking shoes. The UW campus is large and you will be walking an average of 1.5 miles during your A&O session.

7. Bring Your ID

A government issued photo ID is required in order for you to receive your Husky Card, to take a placement test, and to take care of other business on campus.

8. Bring a Bag & Pen

Some sort of small bag or purse will help you carry the items that you bring (water bottle, sunglasses, etc.) as well as a pen to take notes in the additional materials that we provide throughout the program.

9. Stay Hydrated

Don’t forget a water bottle! You’ll be walking around quite a bit.

10. Make New Friends, But Keep The Old...At Home

A&O is designed for you to interact with your classmates. Don’t bring friends with you because we’ll be supplying you with new ones!

11. Get Ready for a Good Time!

Look forward to an awesome time! This will be your first interaction with other first year students on campus, and we’re excited to make it fun!
