About Orientation

Congratulations and welcome to SUNY Oneonta!

At orientation, new students learn about SUNY Oneonta’s academic and behavioral expectations, college values, traditions and social opportunities; as well as connecting with other new students, returning students, faculty and staff members.

SUNY Oneonta has a three-part orientation process:

All new students are required to complete the online orientation. You'll receive a message in your SUNY Oneonta email with a link to the online orientation in December.

Spring 2021 January Orientation

All new students are required to attend their January orientation session, which will have synchronous and asynchronous components. During the synchronous session on January 22, students will meet their Dragon Guide and attend real-time information sessions with campus presenters together as a group. Students will need to complete the asynchronous sessions on their own time by January 30.

Orientation Details and Schedule

The third piece involves programming and support for new students during the first few weeks of the semester. We know that you will have questions during your transition to college life at SUNY Oneonta. The Office of New Student Services is here to help you find answers!

We look forward to meeting you at orientation and at the many different events and activities sponsored by the New Student Services team!
