MAC New Student Online Orientation

Welcome! We are very happy that you have chosen Heidelberg University to continue your education. Our University's Vision Statement speaks most poignantly to the vision and mission of the MAC Program:

"Heidelberg will be a welcoming, student-centered university where in-class and out-of-class learning is seamless and continuous. Both the undergraduate and graduate curriculums will effectively integrate liberal arts and professional preparation across disciplines to prepare our students to be global citizens who communicate effectively, think critically and serve thoughtfully."

As a new student in the MAC Program, you will be required to attend our New Student Orientation held on campus each Fall. To assist with planning, this fall New Student Orientation is customarily held on the Saturday before classes begin. In the meantime, since you are starting prior to our fall orientation, you will need to complete a preliminary orientation tutorial to our Program and Heidelberg University. This presentation is designed to introduce you to our program and the university. It elaborates on the variety of information that you have recently received in the mail, heard from our faculty, Program Director, Administrative Assistant and/or the Admissions Office.

This orientation tutorial offers a brief overview of the Graduate Studies in Counseling program, information about financial aid, and some very important policies governing student expectations and conduct as a Berg student. All students must complete this tutorial prior to beginning any coursework. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Graduate Counseling office at 419.448.2288.

Review this material carefully. At the bottom of each section you will be required to click the link, sending you to the next page or section. At the very end of this orientation you will take a "Reinforce The Reader" quiz. Don't be alarmed, if you miss something, please feel free to go back and review.

  1. No incoming Spring or Summer candidate may register for classes until verification that the quiz has been taken is received, so please don't forget to take the quiz.
  2. Once you have taken the quiz, notification will be sent to Graduate Admissions and your file will be authorized for registration (also upon receipt of your transcripts). This quiz allows you to reinforce your understanding of our program as well as to note areas for which you may need clarification.
  3. Should you receive a score LESS than a 70%, you will need to retake the quiz to achieve a score of 70% or above.

This on-line tutorial cannot be substituted for the onsite "New Student Fall Orientation" offered each August. Completion of this preliminary orientation will allow you to begin coursework in the MAC Program, but you will still be required to register for (COU 501 – no credit but a graduation requirement) and attend the entire session of the annual, on-campus Fall Orientation scheduled for the Saturday prior to the first day of classes.
