University of Iowa

Is it required?

All members of the Class of 2023 are expected to attend the core On Iowa! program (Friday, August 23-Sunday, August 25). New transfer students (coming from another institution) are invited (and highly encouraged) to participate in the On Iowa! program.

The On Iowa! program is an introduction to the resources and skills you’ll need for a successful college experience within and beyond the classroom. The pre-program (August 20-22) occurs during the heavy residence hall move-in days and is filled with many activities during the day and into the evening.
