Online Orientation

Update: 4-6-20: In compliance with federal, state and local governing agency mandates and recommendations related to COVID-19, and for the health and safety of students, staff and faculty, CBU has moved all New Student Orientations to a virtual format. Please visit the New Student Orientation website to sign up. 

New Student Orientation Dates: 

New Student Orientation is a two part process, that includes information you need to succesfully start at CBU, and personalized materials for you to register for classes for the fall semester. 

Part 1/2: Complete Orientation Module

Once you sign up for a New Student Orientation date, you will immediately receive an email with a link to access the Orientation Module, an interactive overview of the CBU experience, which includes the traditions and resources available to you as a student. We invite you to complete this entire module, as it has helpful information you need to know to successfully start at CBU. You can use your CBU ID and password to log in to the module.


Part 2/2: Register for Classes

By 5:00PM PDT on your New Student Orientation date, you will receive an email with your materials to register for classes.  The materials you will receive are put together by the Academic Advising office and contain instructions on how to register for classes using InsideCBU. If you have questions during the process, you can reach out to your academic advisor, whom you will continue to work with at CBU. You will have seven days to register in your classes, however it should only take you an hour or two to complete the process.   

To reach out directly to your Academic Advisor with questions, use the Find My Advisor tool.
