This year we will be offering both a Virtual Pre-Orientation (launches July 11th) in conjunction with an in-person Orientation, scheduled for August 26th-28th.

Registration will be available in mid-July.


Virtual Pre-Orientation Coming Soon!


The transition to college is one of the biggest steps you'll take in life. We want to help you get ready for a year full of academic and social growth. The Virtual Pre-Orientation will cover everything you need to know prior to attending the in-person experience in late August and will include the following:

  • Overview of the Peer Advisor role and the first year seminar
  • Helpful information for both residential and commuter students
  • Academic resources, including information on our 4-to-Finish program
  • ...and more!

In-Person Orientation will be held August 26-28

We are excited to welcome you and your family on-campus for our New Student Orientation program! Please note that New Student Orientation is mandatory for all new students to attend and that Family Orientation is on August 26th, 2022 only.

The $100 registration fee covers incoming students for all three orientation days, including meals.  It also covers one guest for Family Orientation on Friday, Aug. 26, including the President’s Dinner. If you have additional guests, tickets may be purchased for $25 each. More information will be available when registration opens on July 11, 2022. 

Students who have extenuating circumstances affecting their ability to pay the non-refundable orientation fee may request consideration for an exemption when filling out the New Student Orientation Registration Form. 

For more information and a tentative schedule, please visit the First Year Students or Transfer Students pages. All schedules are subject to change.
