The Thorobred New Student Orientation

The overarching goal of the Thorobred’s New Student Orientation sessions is to ensure that first-time Kentucky State University (KSU) students complete a successful academic and social transition into the KSU family and, therefore, all new freshman and transfer students are required to select and attend the orientation sessions.

 The Thorobreds New Student Orientation will provide:

  • A brief overview of Thorobred campus life and student activities
  • Expanded introduction and initial meeting with your academic adviser
  • Official registration for the first semester of classes
  • Expanded opportunities to meet and work with Financial Aid counselors
  • Expanded opportunities to complete and finalize housing and student ID issues with Residence Life
  • Expanded opportunity to complete Math and Language placement assessments

Students who participate in the Academics with Attitude Summer Semester will have Orientation as part of that project and are exempt from general Orientation.
