Orientation Dates

We're looking forward to meeting you at an upcoming Orientation program!  Our primary goal is to ensure that every student walks away from their orientation program with the resources, tools, and answers to make sure their first semester is a successful one.  Our summer sessions are designed specifically for domestic first-year, transferring, and non-traditional students enrolling at Rutgers for the fall semester of 2022.

Students attending New Student Orientation must be up to date with the university's COVID-10 Immunization Policy.  Up to date means completing a primary series (2 does of Pfizer, 2 does of Moderna, or 1 dose of J&J) as well as a booster once eligible.  Students will not be able to participate in New Student Orientation until they are compliant. 

** Are you a far out of state student unable to come to campus during the summer?  Please email us for accommodations - orientation@echo.rutgers.edu **
