Orientation & Registration

Bluffton University's orientation program is made up of two separate events. Summer Orientation & Registration is a day-long event held during the spring/summer. Fall Welcome is held the weekend before classes begin in August.


Orientation & Registration

Summer orientation & registration is a one-day program designed to give students and families the information needed for the start of fall semester classes. Students will meet with an academic adviser to register for classes, see their residence hall room and interact with current students. Parents and family members will learn about student support and meet other college parents in a series of structured sessions.
