Undergraduate Online Student Orientation

Students enrolled in an undergraduate online program at Wichita State are required to complete online student orientation. The orientation course is offered fully online and provides students with the understanding of how to use and navigate Blackboard. If you do not complete orientation during your first semester, an orientation hold will be placed in your account. The hold will prevent you from enrolling in future classes at WSU until you have completed the orientation.

The Orientation module can be found in Blackboard under your My Organization tab through the Online Learning Link. Click "Start Here!" in the menu bar and complete the modules.

Returning students or those who have already completed an on-campus orientation program are strongly encouraged to utilize these resources, as they do highlight the different needs and expectations of an online education. However, the program is not required for students who have participated in a WSU Orientation program in the past.
