It is assessed to all students who enter as freshmen and covers the cost of the summer orientation, “Last Stop Orientation” as well as course-related costs and orientation events during the first semester. Students who do not attend all orientation events are still assessed the fee. Transfers with less than 24 credits are assessed the $200 freshman fee. The Freshman Orientation Fee cannot be waived.
