Online Orientation

Please note that University Orientation is mandatory for all incoming students.  The University Orientation program is designed specifically for students to give you the best possible start for your time at Jefferson.

In order to better meet the needs of some of our special populations we have established an online University Orientation that provides comparable information and training to what you would experience in person.  Based upon your academic program, you do NOT have a scheduled on-site (in-person) University Orientation.  You will fulfill your University Orientation requirement by completing the online University Orientation.  

Students in the following programs or with the circumstances noted below will complete the Online University Orientation:

  • Jefferson College of Health Professions
    • Department of Radiologic Sciences (Certificate Programs and Master of Science in Radiologic and Imaging Sciences), Center City Campus
  • Jefferson College of Nursing
