RUC_Primary Lockup_Spot

This orientation is for our Radford University Carilion (RUC) students on our Roanoke campus only.  This is not Quest orientation for our incoming students on our main campus in Radford.  Incoming students attending our main campus, please sign up for Quest through your MyRU portal.

Welcome to Radford University Carilion (RUC)!  We are really looking forward to seeing you at New Student Orientation!

New students for the fall 2020 semester are required to attend New Student Orientation.

Welcome to Radford University Carilion (RUC)!  We are really looking forward to seeing you soon!

Due to COVID-19 precautions, orientation will be 100% online this year.  New Student Orientation will be offered as a course in D2L (Desire 2 Learn) and will be available to all new students beginning August 1.  Students do not need to register for online orientation.  New students should login to their MyRU account to access D2L and the NSO course.  Once students have finished each module and the survey, they will be issued a completion certificate.  The course should be completed by August 12. 

We will also be offering a New Student Orientation Open Forum on Tuesday, August 11 from 9:00-11:00am via Zoom.  All new students will be emailed the Zoom link if they would like to attend.  Representatives from a variety of student service areas will be available during this time to answer questions.  We encourage students to invite their family to this Open Forum.

ID Badges, OneCards and Prox Cards

Be on the lookout for an important email from your program's Administrative Assistant in the next few weeks.  To avoid lines and contact this semester, we will be emailing instructions on how to get your ID badge, OneCard and prox card.  These cards will be issued a few departments at a time over the summer.  Your email will include links to online forms and you can even download a picture for your ID.  Once we have needed information, we will place cards in the mail to you. 

Individual Appointments

Additionally, the following offices will be available on Monday, August 10 and Tuesday, August 11 for individual appointments via Zoom or phone.  To schedule with these offices, please click the links below:
