Registration for summer Orientation Programs will begin in March.

  • ACE Orientation - Friday, January 5, 2024 (for students entering UE in the 2024 spring semester)
  • SOAR 1 – Friday, June 28, 2024
  • SOAR 2 – Friday, July 12, 2024
  • SOAR 3 – Friday, August 16, 2024

Every new student must attend an orientation program. SOAR is required for incoming freshmen and recommended for all incoming students under age 21. Students transferring to UE and non-traditional-aged undergraduates may find ACE Orientation a more appropriate fit.

SOAR is a one-day orientation program required of all entering freshmen; parents are encouraged to attend with their student. This program offers students an opportunity to meet faculty and staff, understand policies and support systems, finalize their class schedule, and learn more about campus life. Deposited students can register for the SOAR session of their choice, although sessions are filled on a first come, first served basis.

ACE Orientation is the University of Evansville's condensed orientation program for transfer students, re-entry students, and non-traditional-aged students. Every new student must attend either SOAR or ACE Orientation.

ACE Orientation stands for Aces Connection Experience. The ACE Orientation program is a one-day event designed to help you transition to UE and to introduce you to the programs, services and personnel we have at UE to help support you. ACE Orientation covers information related to student engagement, academic expectations and preparedness, support systems, technology, and financial aid. A family member or guest is invited to attend the program if you wish.

Contact the Office of the Center for Student Engagement for questions about SOAR or ACE Orientation at or 812-488-2371.

Beginning in May and continuing throughout the summer, deposited students will receive an outreach from our Office of Academic Services inviting them to schedule a private phone, Zoom, or in-person visit with an academic advisor. Academic goals will be discussed and fall classes will be tentatively selected during this appointment.  Class schedules will then be finalized during the student’s respective orientation program.  Soon after the semester begins, you will be assigned a faculty advisor from your chosen major who will assist with registration for subsequent semesters.

FRESHMEN: Prior to leaving high school, please instruct your school counselor to send your official final transcript to the UE Office of Admission. Your final transcript should contain the following:

  • Indication of graduation date
  • Cumulative grade point average
  • Eighth semester grades
  • Final class ranking (if your school ranks)

TRANSFER STUDENTS: At the time of admission to UE, your transcript may have listed “courses in progress.” If so, please request a final official transcript once the semester concludes so that we can award transfer credits. Official transcripts may be sent to

If you took college courses that were through a dual enrollment program with your high school, please request a transcript from each college where you have earned credit.

If you have taken courses through Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) programs, please direct the testing agency to send your exam scores to UE for evaluation of UE course credit.

An advisor from our Office of Academic Services will review and determine the awarding of UE credit. Contact UE’s Office of Academic Services with questions at or (812) 488-2600.

State law and University policy require that all new incoming, full-time students submit an updated, physician certified immunization record and physical. The University uses Med+Proctor for our health information verification and compliance process. Information about health and immunization requirements can be viewed on the Health Center website. Questions can be directed to UE's Health Center at 812-488-2033.

Welcome Week is a program designed to help new students transition to life at UE. This program is required for all new freshman students, so pre-registration is not required. However, ALL new students, including transfer students and non-traditional freshmen, who desire this experience are welcome to register for Welcome Week.

The program includes informational sessions, food, volunteer opportunities and entertainment focused on building new relationships with other incoming students and the UE community. Welcome Week participants arrive four days before classes begin for this fun-filled event. Students are guided through this transition period by a group of energetic mentors called Orientation Leaders (OLs). Students will be assigned a small group and an OL when they arrive and check in for Welcome Week.

Contact the Office of the Dean of Students with questions about Welcome Week at or (812) 488-2500.
