What is New Student Orientation? 

New Student Orientation is a mandatory two-part process for all students newly accepted or re-accepted: Visual Zen Orientation and Foundations.

Part One
Visual Zen Orientation is a process which familiarizes all new students (on-campus* and Distance Learning) with important SEBTS policy and procedural information. Access to the Online Orientation Reservation System will be sent to you via e-mail within 3-5 business days of receiving your acceptance letter.

Part Two
Foundations is a two-day event for all new on-campus* students. During Foundations students will learn the identity of SEBTS as well as resources available to them as a student, and finalize all logistics needed for enrollment.
 Distance learning students are invited to attend Foundations, or they may access this information online.

*Note: On-campus students are defined as any student living within 120 miles of SEBTS.
