Check-in for summer Orientation is available on day-one from 10:00 am - 12:30 pm in Centennial Hall.

Orientation Group Meetings

Throughout Orientation, you will have time set aside to meet with your Orientation Leader. All Orientation Leaders are current student leaders who are working with the Office of Orientation & First-Year Initiatives to assist new students with their entry into the university community.

Group meetings will provide you an opportunity to hear from a true expert on what life is really like on campus and will also allow you to have your questions answered in a small group format.

Financial Appointment

During Summer Orientation, you have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a Financial Planner.

If documentation was requested from you (income tax returns, verification worksheet, loan application(s), etc.) and you have not yet mailed the requested documentation to the university, please print and bring the documents with you to your appointment.

Financial Planners will be on hand to review your financial options, assist with the completion of loan applications and entrance interviews, and to help you finalize payment methods.
