In order to reduce the potential impact of COVID-19 on the health and wellness of the Regis community, we have made the decision to transition new student orientation from an in-person event to a virtual program.
Orientation is a student’s first step into college living! At orientation, you will meet the members of your class, meet our amazing orientation leader staff and get a taste of what our community holds for you when you arrive for the fall or spring semester. The Office of New Student Programs is here to help you get situated in your new home at Regis.
Orientation programs are scheduled in January for students beginning their spring semester, June for students beginning their fall semester, and an additional orientation right before the start of the fall semester to welcome our international students and for those students unable to attend in June. Orientation is critical to the success of each student. You will meet new friends, make connections, learn about your new home, and have fun doing it!
We are excited to welcome you to campus. Please know that my office door is always open for you. Go Pride!
This year, we're excited to announce that Regis will be utilizing Comevo, an online orientation platform, to help you learn about our community and resources that are vital to your success as a member of the Pride.
This orientation experience is designed to be completed at your own pace, prior to the first day of fall classes. If you lose internet connection or need to take a screen break at any time, your progress will be saved and you can resume later. You are encouraged to click on the links you see throughout the course to view videos, documents, and websites that contain important and useful information. If you need to return to a section, please use the table of contents on the left side of the screen. You cannot move forward to the next section until you complete the section you are currently viewing. When you have completed all of the modules, you will be able to move freely to any section that you would like to review
Gaining access to the online orientation is easy! You can begin by clicking on this link and entering your name and student ID number on the first page. Your student ID can be found on your ITS account letter. You must enter your name and student ID to ensure that your progress is saved.
New students must complete this online orientation program by Friday, August 7. If you have questions or need any help along the way, please feel free to reach out to Erica Devine, director of the Center for Student Engagement.
Regis is invested in your academic and co-curricular success as you transition to life on campus. The Extended Orientation Experience is a series of supplemental events and programs offered throughout the summer designed to provide you with additional information, tips, tricks, and support as you embark on this new chapter of your life as a Regis student. Each week will focus on a different area of campus life and give you an opportunity to learn more, ask questions, and meet some of our wonderful faculty, staff, and current students. For questions or additional information about the Extended Orientation Experience, please contact Elise Yonika.
The Regis Mentoring Initiative is a program designed to provide personal guidance and support to first year students of color and first generation students through the assignment of trained peer, faculty, staff, and graduate mentors.

First-Year Seminar (FYS) is a three-credit course offered to all new students during the fall semester. Students are taught by faculty members who also serve as their academic advisor during their first year at Regis. During FYS, students learn about Regis' history and heritage, become familiar with academic resources and goal-setting, engage in a variety of co-curricular experiences, and participate in a challenge-based learning project.
Students will receive an invitation directly from their FYS Instructor for a mid-summer check-in and mini class. Catch up with your classmates and get prepared for fall semester!
