August 16-19, 2018
Congratulations and Welcome to APU! You are about to begin a journey that some may call the most memorable years of your life. On behalf of the entire staff and faculty here at APU, we welcome you and are looking forward to meeting you!
Orientation at APU is more personalized and informal than what you would expect at a larger university. You might say that orientation is your ticket to your APU adventure.
You’ll be able to register for classes, talk to Student Financial Services as well as other staff and faculty who will be able to help you while you are an APU student. On top of all that you will start to build new friendships, participate in many social activities and events during Orientation, and learn more about Alaska and who we are. By the end of orientation you’ll know how to register for classes, where to buy your books, and just about everything else you need to know to about navigating APU.
This year we have two different Orientations. One geared for students and the other for those parents who are accompanying their family members to APU. Feel free to contact the Office of the Dean of Students at (907) 564-8287 with any questions you may have.
For questions about APU or your transition to Alaska, please contact the Orientation Leaders at 907-885-4837.
Have a great summer and again welcome to the APU family!
