Orientation 2022

Information as of May 19, 2022

All new students (first year students and transfer students) are required to participate in all parts of Orientation which also includes academic advising and course enrollment. Orientation entails engaging with fellow students, registering for classes, learning about our academic and co-curricular programs, and obtaining information about how you can get involved with the Santa Clara community.

Parents and other family members are encouraged (not required) to participate in Orientation through sessions designed specifically for them. We will introduce parents and other family members to the values, goals, and practices of Santa Clara as well as share resources about our academic programs and student services.

Updates & Announcements

Math Advance Pilot Program

Students who take the Calculus Readiness Exam (CRE) by June 15, 2022 will be considered for the Math Advance pilot program. Math Advance is a free 3 week online program offered this August to help a small group of students get off to a strong start in their university math sequence and to make some human connections with experienced SCU math student partners before the school year begins.

There are two sections of Math Advance:

  • Math Advance Calculus is designed for students who are just short of the cutoff for being eligible to take calculus in the fall and will help bring those students over the threshold.
  • Math Advance Precalculus is designed for students who will be taking Precalculus in the fall, but could benefit from some extra practice and instruction in skills and concepts from high school math.

More details can be found at the Mathematics & Computer Science Department website.
