The Office of Orientation and First Year Programs would like to congratulate new students on their decision to attend Framingham State University.

The Orientation Program provides an introduction to student life at the University, and helps students achieve a smooth academic transition by providing careful advisement on course and program selection prior to registration. The Orientation Program is specifically designed to meet the needs of new students. Orientation will take place on Thursday, January 12, 2017 (January 13 if the university is closed on January 12 due to inclement weather) for both first-year and transfer students. It is MANDATORY for all Day Division students entering Framingham State University.

At Orientation new students will ...

  • Register for classes and/or learn how to view their schedules online.
  • Meet faculty advisors from their academic departments.
  • Learn about courses, majors, and how to build a course schedule.
  • Be introduced to campus environment.
  • Meet current student leaders and other new students.
  • Learn about campus life and available support resources for students.
