Welcome to Thomas University!
Online Orientation for Students – Required – (Spring and Summer Semester)
All new students are required to complete the TU New Student Online Orientation below. This orientation provides vital information for knowing how to use your Student Portal (Hawklink), Blackboard online learning sites that accompany all courses at TU, and Library resources available to you on campus or as a distance student. In addition, it orients you to the TU Honor Code, FERPA and student privacy rights, our expectations for academic integrity, as well as orienting you to academic support services and opportunities for your involvement at TU. You may also review information in the New Student Orientation Guide. The orientation is designed to take no more than 30 minutes. Please complete the online orientation from the comfort of your home or office and answer the questions at the end of the presentation. The final “quiz” lets us know that you have completed this mandatory orientation.
After viewing the above orientation presentations, complete the quiz below. To ensure the quiz submits properly, please use either Firefox or Chrome browser.
