New Student Experience

First Year, Transfer, Residential & Commuter Students

Acclimating to college life does not happen quickly and we acknowledge this by providing an orientation program that spans from your admissions process through the end of your first year beginning with Summer Orientation, continuing with Welcome Week at the start of your first semester, and extending into your second semester with Welcome Back.

Deposited students can start the enrollment process shortly after February 1.
