Congratulations on your decision to attend Utah State University Blanding! We are excited for you to join our family.
New Student Orientation is a required five-module process that runs through your first semester at USU. It is designed to help prepare you for college and give you relevant information when you need it most. Online orientation can be found at blanding.usu.edu/admissions/orientation.
First Year Students
After you complete the first two orientation modules, you will need to meet with an academic advisor to register for classes. Module 2 will explain everything you need to know and do prior to visiting with your academic advisor. Help for first year students can be found at blanding.usu.edu/first-year.
If you are transferring from another college or university, you will complete the first two orientation modules, then meet with an academic advisor to register for classes. Module 2 will explain everything you need to know prior to visiting with an academic advisor.
Living on-campus means more sleep, friends, and better grades. While others are driving or walking to campus, you are getting those precious extra minutes of sleep or studying. You get to make new friends and hang out with roommates. On-campus housing is a community of support, assistance, and activities. For more information, visit Housing & Residence Life.
Earning a degree is an investment that will shape the rest of your life. Remember that you don’t have to pay tuition in one lump sum, there are online payment plans and plenty of free resources to help. Be sure to ask questions, apply for scholarships, and invest in yourself.
