What should I expect at Orientation?

New Student Orientation is mandatory and all new admits are required to attend their assigned day. This half-day journey will be conducted in the College of Business and Economics Building and will allow students to:

  • Meet and interact with other students in their college by participating in activities and enjoying a meal with friends.
  • Hear advice from current QU students and learn about various academic support and student services available to them.
  • Receive academic advising and course selection recommendations, and also register online for their classes.
  • Collect their QU ID card.

 

Which day and time must I attend?

To complete your admission to Qatar University, you are required to attend the New Student Orientation on your assigned orientation day. You should log on to your Admissions Self-Service Account to view your specific event assignment. In addition, an email notification of your event assignment will be sent to the personal email address you provided in your admissions application.

Students who fail to attend orientation will not be able to register or attend the Fall 2013 semester classes and will need to re-apply for Spring 2014 admission.

 

Do I need to take the ACCUPLACER test?

Qatar University mandates that all applicants to Colleges that have Foundation Program requirements must complete the ACCUPLACER test before they can register for classes.
