Welcome, Future Thunderbirds to T.H.O.R. (Thunderbird Orientation and Registration).

The goal of T.H.O.R. is to prepare you to start your educational journey on the right foot.

To accomplish this you will need to make sure a few things are done to ensure you are truly prepared.

  • You must have completed the application process and submitted a valid ID.
  • You must have a form of placement on file (GPA. ACT, SAT, ACCUPLACER, or EdReady). This will ensure you are able to schedule classes. Once this is on file a Preadvisement schedule will be sent to your school email outlining your first semester courses within your program map.
  • You must complete the T.H.O.R orientation in its entirety to receive a certification of completion.

By ensuring these requirements are completed you are preparing to start your journey successfully. If you encounter any challenges or have questions regarding this process. Please contact the New Student Welcome Room Team.
