New Student Orientation

To ensure a smooth transition to Bentley University, we utilize a tiered approach to onboarding our new students. Bentley Beginnings is the start of your journey, then course registration, and we complete the experience with an Orientation program in August. In addition, we provide some other optional experiences to engage before the start of the semester:  

  • Falcon Live Chats (Zoom webinar series) 
  • Virtual Office Hours  
  • Monthly Newsletter 
  • Virtual Social Events
  • Social media, follow us on instagram: @welcomefalcons

To get started with your new student onboarding experience, please make sure that you have signed your Technology Ethics Agreement in your BentleyConnect portal and received your Bentley email address. Next, please read through your New Student Guide. There is important information regarding mandatory tasks and deadlines, which you must complete prior to the start of the semester.

To complete these tasks you will log into your BentleyConnect Portal. Make sure to check the portal regularly, to ensure you have completed your tasks.
