Winter & Spring Welcomes

If you will be joining us for your first term at WOU during Winter or Spring term, we have a special orientation just for you! We’re excited to have you as a WOU Wolf!

Although our Winter Welcomes have already passed, we invite you to get connected with some resources by filling out this survey. Feel free to also check out some of our online orientation modules using the buttons below!

If you’ll be attending WOU for the first time this Spring, we invite you to our Spring Welcome events that will occur on April 3rd and 4th! More information to come!

Before you Get here

Before you begin your classes for Winter Term, there are a few things you need to do. Please follow the steps listed on our WOU said Yes! webpage to get started! Make sure you have access to your WOU Portal and email. Your WOU email is the main way campus departments, like Student Success & Advising and Financial Aid, will get in touch with you, so start your time with WOU off right by getting in the habit of checking it regularly.

Soon you’ll be getting an email with information on how to connect with an advisor and register for classes. If you have questions or experience any trouble getting connected with an advisor, please email

You’re Invited:

We also want to invite you to our Spring Welcome Days on Monday, April 3rd or Tuesday, April 4th. These new student orientation events are the same, so you only need to register for one. These will both be held from 8:30am-11:30am and be drop-in style, so you can come at a time that works best for you and stay for as long or as little as you like. We hope you’re able to at least join us for a cup of coffee and light breakfast before your first class! Please use the following link to RSVP; please RSVP even if you cannot attend to be connected to campus resources.
