Online Orientation

For students who have selected the fully online orientation, you will be enrolled in a Canvas course that must be completed prior to meeting with an advisor to register for classes. Please allow 48-hours after signing up to see the course on your Canvas homepage. More information is sent directly to your Salem State email.

There will be different sections of the orientation that need to be completed both before your faculty advising appointment for class registration and before actual classes begin. More details are located within the Canvas course. 

*For accommodations, please contact disability services at 978.542.6217. 

Once you pay your enrollment deposit and sign up for orientation you'll also have access your Salem State email. To log in you should use the same username and password as your Navigator account. First time users must click "FORGOT PASSWORD" in order to set your password.

Email is the official method of communication at Salem State. We recommend you check your account regularly to ensure you don't miss anything.
