WGU orientation is an introductory experience in which all new students are required to complete. Orientation begins after the 15th of the month prior to a student's first day of their first term at WGU. Students must successfully complete the orientation process before setting enrollment & registration with their program mentor. In Orientation, students interact with Orientation specialists and their program mentor, through discussion threads, live webinars, email, and individual phone calls. They also prepare for their term enrollment phone call with their program mentor. Contact the Orientation (opens new window) team for more information.
