The Orientation Guide will be sent to incoming students prior to matriculation. Attendance is required for all programs, and international students are also required to attend an orientation session hosted by the International Students Office. By attending Orientation, students will:
- Feel aided in making the transition from their previous environments to UVA and the School of Data Science.
- Be informed of campus services and resources that will enhance their academic success and overall college experiences.
- Better understand strategies for success and begin to understand their own potential and challenges.
- Begin to feel connected to the UVA and the School of Data Science community and feel confident and excited about their educational choice.
The School of Data Science requires all students across programs to attend Orientation, which typically occurs the week prior to a program's first day of class.
