NEED A HOTEL?
For safety and maintenance reasons students arriving prior to their registered orientation date will not be able to move-in early. However, you can view hotel options here. Some hotels have special rates for incoming students staying for orientation. View hotel options here.
Your Scarletmail email account will be the primary way that many university offices will contact you so it will be very important for you to create your account after you activate your NET ID.
Make sure to begin using and checking this account on a regular basis.
To activate your Scarletmail:
Signing up for Orientation is easy but don’t delay. Spaces for our orientation programs are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage you to choose an orientation program by June 1st by visiting the Enrollment Pathway.
You will need to upload your photo on the Enrollment Pathway at least 10 days before their orientation session (detailed instructions about submitting photo IDs are listed on the Enrollment Pathway). You will receive your ID when you attend your orientation session.
When you register for your orientation you are asked to provide us with the contact information of a family member. Many students INCORRECTLY believe that this is how family members are registered for Parent and Family Orientation.
Parents and family members who wish to attend Parent and Family Orientation must purchase a ticket(s) for their orientation session at this website.
Parent and family members attending during the summer DO NOT need to attend the Parent and Family Orientation session that takes place on the same day as their student’s orientation session. Family members can attend ANY session during the summer. Please note that space at our Parent and Family Orientation sessions are limited so please purchase your tickets as soon as you can.
Waive/Sign up for the University Insurance Plan by September 15, 2017.*
*Students can and should attend NSO even if they have not done the above.
This is a list of items to bring with you to orientation. Some of these items apply to only to those students staying for an overnight program. One week before your orientation you will receive an email with more information.
