Hello New Students!

We will begin releasing information on Undergraduate Orientation 2021 as programs are planned. Any questions can be directed to

There is nothing to do at this time regarding Undergraduate Orientation. On June 1, 2021, students will be introduced to their New Student Checklist.  This checklist will guide incoming students through the summer and detail out several requirements they must complete prior to arrival.  The Undergraduate Orientation team will also be in regular contact with new students and families throughout the summer in preparation for Fall 2021. 

For now, Orientation is scheduled from Wednesday, September 1 – Monday, September 6, 2021. Arrival day and the annual Matriculation Ceremony is scheduled for September 1st.  Parent/family programming will be offered during the day on Wednesday, September 1st. Parents and families will be asked to depart by 5 pm on that day, as the students' Undergraduate Orientation programming will begin at that time. As a reminder, students who choose to participate in one of the eight Pre-Orientation programs will arrive and move-in on an earlier date (TBA).  PLEASE NOTE:  No decisions have been made regarding in-person vs. virtual orientation programming or exact arrival dates. 

Finally, due to the University regulations regarding COVID-19, all dates and programming plans are subject to change and will be determined based on the health and safety of all students and the campus community. Decisions will be communicated as they are made throughout the summer.
