Virtual New Student Orientation

DSU 2020 Vision: Seeing Beyond COVID-19

Delta State University offers an extensive orientation program each summer for new students enrolling for the fall semester. Completely online one-day sessions for entering freshmen and transfer students who have been admitted to the university, and for parents of first-time students, will be held in June and July. Freshman and transfer students will attend an online program designed to familiarize them with DSU policies and procedures while introducing them to faculty, staff, students, and campus life.

Students who have not registered for classes will need to ensure unofficial transcripts are provided to the Office of Admissions at in order for an academic advisor to assist with registration for fall classes. GO STATESMEN!

What is Orientation?

Delta State University offers summer Orientation sessions that are designed to familiarize you with university policies and procedures while introducing you to faculty, staff, and campus life.

Does it matter which session I attend?

No! New this year, freshman and transfer students will both attend the same one-day sessions.

The dates for these sessions have been chosen with the student in mind; however, due to limited accommodations, sessions are subject to close. Register for only one session.

How long are the sessions?

Orientation check-in begins at 8:00 AM and the session begins promptly at 9:00 AM. The session will last until mid-afternoon.

All students are required to attend all scheduled events in order to pre-register for fall courses.

How can I sign up for orientation?

You must sign up for Orientation by completing the online reservation form that is available through the students’ admissions account. Again, please note that sessions are subject to close and reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis!
