Welcome, Our New Scarlet Knights to Rutgers!

The mission of New Student Orientation and Family Programs is to welcome, prepare, and engage new students and their families in their transition to Rutgers University-New Brunswick.   You will have an opportunity to learn about tools and resources available to you as a Rutgers student, tips and strategies to best navigate the campus, and connect with other new students and student leaders. 

How to Register for Orientation 

Registration is live. You can visit your MyRutgers Dashboard and select your Orientation date.
