Fall Adult Orientation

Fall Adult Learner Orientation is designed for new Adult Learners (Freshman 21+) beginning their studies at UL Lafayette during the fall semester. During Orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet other incoming students, learn about university resources, discuss important tips for a successful transition to college life, meet with an academic advisor in your area of study and register for classes. Members of our Student Orientation Staff will help you understand what it means to be a student on our campus and will guide you through the experience.
