Bellarmine University / Your First Year

Your First Year


Going from high school to college can be a big transition. We are here to help guide you through this process. Attending a Knight U: Orientation and getting registered for classes is your first step. Next, you will work to complete Knight Essentials, your online orientation to the university. Five days before classes begin, all first-year students will come to campus to start their Week of Welcome experience. We complete this process by enrollment in BU 100 – a course designed to support first-year student success in your first semester.

If you have questions or need assistance, please reach out to Jessica Lynch, Director of Orientation, New Student and Family Programs, jlynch3@bellarmine.edu or 502.272.8433.
