UVI Invites New Students to Early Orientation for Fall 2016

 The University of the Virgin Islands-St. Thomas Campus invites all new students to early orientation and registration for the fall semester 2016.
Early orientation will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, July 12, and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday, July 13, on the St. Thomas Campus.
Early registrants may choose courses, complete financial aid, meet administrators and get academic advice.
“Our new early orientation and registration will ensure that new students register with ease and that their first campus experience is productive and fun,” said Verna Rivers, dean of students on the St. Thomas Campus. “I am confident this initiative will provide a successful transition to the Buccaneer way of life. At UVI we continue to work hard to enhance the student experience and increase student satisfaction.”
Students who take advantage of early registration will have the convenience of personalizing course schedules, completing financial aid, connecting with resources, touring the campus, receiving academic advice and taking their ID photos. UVI student orientation leaders will be on hand to guide students on each step of the way. Parents of the new Buccaneers can also participate in the “Support Your Buccaneer” session to gain information about university processes.
“The Registrar’s Office is prepared to welcome all new students to the University of the Virgin Islands this fall,” said Monifa Potter, UVI registrar. “I urge all new students to take advantage of this early orientation and registration option. It is said that the early bird gets the worm, but getting an early start on your college preparation will enhance your University experience.”
Students are welcome to contact the Dean of Students’ Office at 693-1120 or the Registrar’s Office on the St. Thomas Campus for more information at http://registrar@uvi.edu or 693-1160.
