Thank you for visiting the Anoka-Ramsey Orientation website! We are currently not offering orientations as our Fall 2020 classes have already begun. Below is information regarding when orientation will be available based on start term and student type, as well as a pre-orientation checklist new students can start now as they wait.

Online orientation requests for transfer students will open Monday, September 28th. Visit our site at this time to request your online orientation.

Orientation sign-ups for general and PSEO students will open in late October. Visit our site at this time to sign up for an orientation session. 

Due to the uncertainty of the future of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will make sure to plan our spring orientation season with statewide recommendations on social distancing and safety standards in mind. We will have more information on how the orientation process for general and PSEO students will look as we release sign-ups to these students in late October.
