summer orientation

Slug Orientation is a mandatory academic program that is designed to assure you start strong from the first day.

All new students must finish Slug Orientation which consists of completing a series of online courses (during June, July, and August) and participation in Fall Welcome Week.

Slug Orientation Canvas course links will be sent directly to your UCSC email account. You will receive individual links for each course (one in June, one in July, and one in August).
