New Student Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance into University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis!

New Student Orientation is your first introduction to UHSP as an official student. You are now a part of our campus community and orientation is an important piece of learning about that community and your role.

During orientation, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Get acquainted with the University and your classmates
  • Learn more about what to expect, policies and procedures, meal plans, parking, campus safety, campus technology, academic rigors, etc.
  • Get to know our campus culture and learn more about the University's values and traditions

First-Year Orientation

Your health and safety is important to us. Because of ongoing social distancing efforts, we have made the decision to hold orientation online.

During online orientation, you’ll meet your classmates, connect in virtual communities, interact with faculty and staff and learn more about campus life.

Students will be able to access orientation materials beginning on Monday, June 1, and will need to complete the program by Saturday, Aug. 1.

To activate your New Student Portal account before orientation, log in using the personal email address that you used to apply to the University. Once you are logged in, set up your profile, share your goals and add a photo of yourself.
