Welcome to the Scarlet Knight Family!  We’re looking forward to seeing you at an upcoming Virtual Orientation Session!  Our primary goal is to ensure that every student leaves their orientation program with the resources, tools and answers to make sure their first semester is a successful one.  All new students are expected to attend a summer orientation program.  Below you will find the date and start time for each orientation session (all times are Eastern Standard Times).  Please note, you must be available to login at a computer at the start time.

What are Priority Sessions?  Priority Sessions are dates that include breakout academic sessions for students enrolled in certain schools. These breakout academic sessions will allow you to hear important information from advisors and faculty from your school of registration. Class registration does not occur during priority session breakout sessions.

If you are a student of one of these schools you are encouraged to attend one the priority sessions for your school. However, if the dates don’t work you will be able to register for any orientation session when you register for orientation on the enrollment pathway.
