Lion Launch

Prepare for success

The UAFS Lion Launch program is a four-hour orientation designed to give transfer and non-traditional students hands-on experience with the UAFS software, security, and technology you’ll use as a Lion. Learn how to access your grades, class schedule, and financial statements on your phone, connect to university WiFi, set meetings with your academic advisors, check-out materials from the Boreham Library, and more.

You’ll discover the credentials and experience you’ll need to place you at the top of employers’ lists. Plus you’ll be able to tour campus, see your classrooms and facilities, tour the library, enjoy a meal with us, and mingle with other non-traditional and transfer students. The countdown to the start of the semester is underway. Register today for Lion Launch.
