Q: What is Freshmen Orientation?

SMU Freshmen Orientation (FO) is a platform for freshmen to make new friends, get inducted into the SMU community and be introduced to the University’s CIRCLE values. It is organised by SMU Office of Student Life and a team of dedicated students in the organising committee under the umbrella of SMU Students’ Association (SMUSA). To find out more about SMUSA, click here.

FO will be both online and offline this year! That means that we will see you guys online on the first day and on campus on the second and third day! 

The nearest MRT stations to SMU are Bras Basah MRT (Circle Line) as well as Bencoolen MRT (Downtown Line). We are also a 5 minute walk away from City Hall MRT (East West Line) and 15 minute walk from Dhoby Ghaut MRT (North East, North South and Circle Line) .

All the schools will be conducting their own orientation programmes so do join them in order to get to know more about your school and make more friends! Click here to find out more (under 'Orientating Orientation').

Freshmen will register or enrol for classes via a bidding system called BOSS (Bidding Online System). Information on policies and procedures relating to course registration can be found in OASIS > BOSS > Course Enrolment & Drop > All about BOSS.
