Step 5: Register for Virtual Orientation (Transfer Students)

Throw on your Blue & Orange and start your life as a Boise State Bronco!

  • WHY: During virtual orientation advising sessions, you will be able to register for classes, connect with academic advisors, meet new students, explore key campus resources and more! Please note, you cannot register for classes prior to virtual orientation. The summer semester is open enrollment, so students admitted for the summer will be able to register when registration opens. However, to continue onto the fall semester, they will need to complete a virtual orientation.
  • WHEN: For students starting in the Fall semester, virtual orientation registration opens in March. Virtual orientation will take place over the summer, prior to classes starting in late August. For students starting in the spring semester, virtual orientation opens in October and takes place in late November-early December.
  • HOW: Students who have completed their intent to enroll confirmation are able to sign up for virtual orientation advising sessions. If you have any college credits that need to be evaluated prior to virtual orientation, make sure to check out Step 6: Send your Final Transcripts.
