Orientation and Registration

It’s our goal to make your transition to HBU as easy as possible.  We are so excited that you’ve decided to become a Husky!


Starting at HBU in Fall of 2017?

Freshman Students: Freshman Orientation is an overnight event called “GO”, which stands for “Get Oriented”.  Freshman GO takes place in June. During GO, you will meet other new Huskies with the same major, have 3 meals on campus, stay in the freshman residence halls, meet one-on-one with Financial Aid and the Cashiers Office, learn more about your major, see where your classes will be held, receive your fall class schedule, do fun night activities, and much more!

The RSVP links for Freshman GO are live and we have just one Freshman GO Session remaining!

*Weather Update: We expect rain on Thursday for GO IV, but all sessions will be indoors and we are looking forward to welcoming you to campus!

Transfer Students: There are two Transfer GO (“Get Oriented”) sessions for transfer students starting in Fall 2017. For Transfer GO, you have the option of the attending the Full Day Experience, or going with the PM Only Session. The RSVP for Transfer GO will go live March 1st, and you must pay your Enrollment Deposit before we can reserve your place in your desired session.

Check-in for the Full Day Experience begins at 9am, and the session includes breaking into groups with other new transfer Huskies, a team “scavenger hunt” that allows you to locate and get to know the most important buildings/rooms on campus, an IT presentation on Blackboard and how to get our HBU username/email, group games, and lunch before advising begins. After class registration, you will meet with financial services and have your student ID made. The Full Day Experience is designed for those who want a more complete orientation rather than just advising and registration.

The PM Only Session has check-in at noon, followed by lunch, academic overviews by college or school, advising appointments, and registering for fall classes in the computer lab with the help of the Admissions Counselors. After registration, you will meet with financial services and have your student ID made.
