What is the ODI Pre-Orientation Program? The Pre-O Program is coordinated each year by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and it is designed to assist students in making a successful transition to Duquesne University. This initiative provides first-year students with a valuable opportunity to connect with a diverse group of students, administrators, faculty, staff, and alumni. The majority of Pre-O sessions and activities are led by returning student leaders who are very active on campus and dedicated to making this a meaningful experience for participants. Although the Pre-O program is open to any student who is interested in attending, we intentionally outreach to underrepresented groups.

How do I access my DU MultiPass Account? The key to gaining access to the Duquesne University online resources (including your email) is your MultiPass account. Your MultiPass account is available to you 24 hours after you have submitted your Admissions deposit.
I am a student athlete. Can I attend? If you are involved with a particular sport (i.e. football, soccer, etc.), please indicate that on the registration form so we can work with your coach and try to make arrangements to have you excused from practice to participate in the ODI Pre-Orientation Program. Every sport has different policies and requirements.
