Online Orientation

Online Student Orientation is required for new online undergraduate students.

The Office of Distance Learning offers a free online orientation course designed to assist online learners with the transition to learning online at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. 

The course is composed of seven topics structured similarly to some of our online courses that will help you to assimilate to learning online, learn about online student resources and support at UL Lafayette as well as outline some of the basics for communicating in an online environment. 

The free, self-paced Online Student Orientation is available in Moodle. The course is located in the Student Information Block on the Moodle home page. Click the “Online Student Orientation” link, log-in to Moodle (using your ULID and password) and self-enroll in the course.  Once you complete the course you will receive a specific user identified Certificate of Completion.

If you are enrolled in an online undergraduate degree or certificate program, your academic advisor will request your Orientation Certificate of Completion before advising you for the first time. Forward your certificate of completion to your advisor when arranging your advising appointment. Your advising hold will be lifted by your advisor once your certificate of completion of online orientation has been received and you have been advised.  

Check it out here.  A University ULID and password for admitted students is required to access this course.

Students in the online RN to BSN program, please visit for details about the online orientation for this specific program.
