Spring Orientation

Our Spring Orientation program is designed to welcome students and families who are beginning classes in January. This orientation welcomes, first time in college, transfer, and international students and their family members. During our program you'll learn about policy, academics, and register for your spring courses.

We look forward to you participating in the January Orientation program on Monday, January 21st and Tuesday, January 22nd.

Cost & Registration Steps

Our summer programs costs $50 per student, and this fee also includes the cost of your guests. Our fee covers the cost for meals over the course of two days, and materials that students and families receive throughout the program. It is also very important to click and read below our "Orientation Registration Instructions" before proceeding with the registration process. 

If you have further questions, or concerns about our process please reach out to our office directly.

Incoming students and families get to make connections with each other, connect with our undergraduate student leaders (called Orientation Advisors), faculty, and staff. Check in will be on Monday, January 21st from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.; resident students will be able to move into their residence hall assignments.  Our program features the ability for students to select classes, learn about campus lives and make connections.  Our program will conclude no earlier than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 22nd.  Please note that the Orientation program is mandatory for all new RWU students.
