Mustang StartUp: Your Virtual Orientation Experience

These interactive modules will introduce you to the SMU Academy, Spirit, People, Campus, and Community. Deposit-paid students can begin completing the Campus Life modules on May 19, 2021. All new students are required to complete these modules prior to the first day of class.
The PACC prepares you for your advising and registration experiences and walks you through important aspects of the SMU Common Curriculum. You must complete the PACC prior to setting up an advising appointment and registering for class. The PACC opens June 8, 2021.
You will sign up for a virtual Advising Appointment with your Academic Advisor following completion of the PACC. Your Advisor will guide you through the registration process and help you plan for your SMU academic career!
Red, Blue, & You is a series of live, virtual events during the month of July designed to prepare you for your journey to the Hilltop. You will have the opportunity to connect with other new Mustangs and hear from offices across the SMU campus about all SMU has to offer! Details about Red, Blue, & You will be available in June!
A lot goes into being prepared to be a Mustang! Work through the New Student Checklist to make sure you have completed all of these items on time so you are ready for Stampede!
