New Student Orientation

Once a first-time freshman is admitted to UL Lafayette, the student must participate in one of the New Student Orientation sessions held on campus during the summer. Orientation, lasting two days, will acquaint students with the University’s academic and social life, as well as with some of the students, faculty, and staff who will help guide them as they begin their college experience. The myriad Orientation activities include speaking with an academic advisor, registering for the first semester’s classes, learning about financial aid opportunities and requirements, and meeting other new students.

Additional information about New Student Orientation, including the schedule of sessions and registration information, is available from the Office of Orientation, online at or by phone at (337) 482-1391.
