Online Orientation

Ready to enroll in your first online course? Our free Online Student Orientation will help you acclimate to learning online and give you tools to succeed as an online student.  

New online undergraduate students at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette must complete Online Student Orientation to register for courses. If you’re an RN to BSN student, you’ll participate in a separate orientation as part of your curriculum when you enroll in NURS 353.

Accessing Online Student Orientation 

You'll find your free, self-paced orientation in Moodle. The course is linked in the Student Information Block on the Moodle home page before you log in to Moodle. Click the “Orientation - Students in Online Programs” link, log in to Moodle (using your ULID and password) and self-enroll in the course. Once you complete the course, you will receive a specific user-identified Certificate of Completion. 

If you don’t see the Moodle home page, you may already be logged in to Moodle. Navigate to and open the Menu at the top left of your page, then click “Site home,” to get to the Moodle home page.  

Your academic advisor will request your Orientation Certificate of Completion before advising you for the first time. Forward your certificate of completion to your advisor when arranging your advising appointment. Once your advisor has received your Certificate of Completion and has met with you, they will lift your advising hold.
