Online Orientation

There is so much information to learn here at Montclair State! It can be overwhelming, and we know it can’t be done in a day (or two). To help, we’ve created an online program through Canvas.

Important Information

  • The Online Orientation will be available through Canvas starting Monday, June 1.
  • This online component of the Montclair State Virtual Orientation Experience is designed to provide you with important information on University academic policies, support services on campus, how to get involved on campus and the Campus Code of Conduct.
  • You can access the online Orientation through Canvas using your NetID and password. The course will be labeled as “Learn How to Be A Red Hawk: Virtual Orientation 2020.” Further information and instructions will be provided to you when you log in!
  • If you are having trouble with the Online Orientation, email us at

Please Note: Online Orientation is NOT a substitute for your in-person Orientation. It is a requirement of the Virtual Orientation Experience.
