College of Health New Student Orientation

Your First Step to Success

Orientation made easier

We hope you're as excited as we are for this life-changing step you're taking. It can feel like a huge step but we're here to guide you.

Your first step is to complete the general Orientation module. 

For more information regarding the U of U’s General Orientation, please visit The Office of Orientation and Transition’s website.

Orientation for Majors in the College of Health (COH)

If you list health or a specific major in the college of health as your area of interest, we will be enrolling you as a student in the College of Health Student Resource Canvas page. You will receive an invitation to join the CoH: Student Resource page through your umail account and will gain admission once you accept. From the invite you may click directly on the hyperlink or paste this URL into your browser and click enter, then click on the button marked “Orientation.”

What should I do once I've finished orientation with the COH?

The end of the short presentation will direct you to schedule an advising appointment to register for classes.

What if I don't get an invite?

If you do not receive an invitation to enroll in the canvas page, or decide to pursue Health after you have registered for Orientation, please contact Lorraine Brown (Lorraine.brown@health.utah.edu ) with your full name and unid. 

You will have access to this Canvas information site beyond your orientation so you can refer to this information as often as you need during your student career at the U.

Find Fun

Yes, seriously find ways to have fun. Once you've accomplished what needs to get done find the things you enjoy. Take a look at a few options.

Scholarships

Did you know nearly $2.6 BILLION in scholarships went unclaimed in 2018?

 

Financing your education helps prevent debt. Less debt means more of what you want to do. We've made it easier than ever to apply for our general scholarships.

You can use one application for the entire process. Make sure to search what scholarships are available to you.
