What is the ACCESS Orientation Program?
The ACCESS Orientation Program provides information to students and their parents in reference to the colleges and schools of the University, the Morgan State University student experience, financial aid including FAFSA information, placement testing, academic advisement, and career development. Additionally, students will participate in online and virtual activities and workshops to include topics such as college transition, school spirit, study skills, and time management strategies. It is expected that at the end of the online, virtual ACCESS Orientation Program students will have all the necessary tools and resources required for their enrollment at the University, as well as for their first year of academic success. The ACCESS Orientation Program pledges to increase access to college for a diverse student population, prepare students for their college matriculation, and provide a head start for students on the path to academic success. It is expected that the campus-wide ACCESS Orientation Program for freshmen which incorporates best practices in higher education will yield outstanding results for the entire undergraduate student population.
This year, due to the financial hardship caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, there is only a non-refundable $100 registration fee for all ACCESS Orientation Program participants who register before May 15. The Orientation will be COMPLETELY ONLINE, virtual ACCESS Orientation Program; late fees may be applied after May 15.

- Students will recieve a series of emails to their Morgan email address from the ACCESS Orientation Program Coordinator, each providing information on a required activity and/or component of the orientation to be completed by a specific deadline(Typically 3-5 business days).
- ACCESS Students will take the Freshman Placement Examination that is required for all Morgan freshmen.
- Once students have completed every component of the online, virtual orientation program, they will receive an ACCESS Orientation Program Certificate of Completion.
