Orientation for students starting in August 2021

Welcome to Alliant!

Join us for Your New Student Webinars for Online Programs

Welcome to the Alliant family! We are looking forward to supporting you on your educational journey. As your student advisory team, our goal is to help you transition into life at Alliant with ease. A series of presentations and activities will help orient you to university policies and procedures, academic program expectations, and student support services. Your first step is to RSVP for the two required webinars below:

  • In the New Student Orientation webinar, you’ll learn about the many student resources available to you, our student portal, important textbook information, and deadlines you’ll want to make note of.
  • In the Canvas 101 webinar, you’ll learn all about using the learning platform Canvas, which you’ll use for your online courses at Alliant. Again, welcome to Alliant. We look forward to seeing you soon!
