Online Orientation

Some new students to Ashland are starting in the Winter or Spring quarters, or even in the summer time. While a face to face orientation is an excellent opportunity to meet faculty, administrators and classmates, this online version provides a lot of the information you need to succeed.

We have compiled for you links to video presentations and all the handbooks, forms, or handouts you may need to assist in getting started with your studies. It is suggested that your view the recordings in the order presented and that you view them completely. At the bottom of the page, we have supplied you with contact information for all the presenters. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can assist you along the way.
