New Student Orientation

Dear New Student:

Welcome to the "Unsinkable" Albany State University (ASU)!  We recognize and value your decision to attend ASU.  Whether the decision was based on our nationally recognized academic programs, or vibrant campus life, our proud athletic tradition, our rich legacy in this region, or your connection with members of our illustrious alumni, we are honored that you have decided to become a part of the "RAMily."  Please see below the steps to start your orientation experience.  

  • STEP ONE:  REGISTER for the Spring Orientation (on-campus) for Friday, January 7, 2022 (click here). Students living in on-campus housing will need to move in on Thursday, January 6, 2022.  *Please note that online students (100% online) are exempt from this step.*

  • STEP TWO: COMPLETE your Ram Ready! Pre-Orientation (click here). You will need your ASU email and username to access the system. If you have not set up your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), then please click here prior to beginning Ram Ready.

  • STEP THREE: COMPLETE the Pre-Advising Survey at the end of your RAM Ready! Orientation
