When will I get my Student ID?

What is the difference between Summer Orientation and Fall Welcome?

Summer Orientation is a two day, overnight program that is specific to our incoming First Year students. During Summer Orientation incoming students and their families have the opportunity to discuss various topics such as financial aid, student life, work study, and other important information. It is during this time where all students receive their class schedules, usernames, passwords, and formally go through the academic advising process.

Fall Welcome is a weekend of festivities for first year students only. As an extension of Summer Orientation, First Year Students who will reside on campus move into their residence hall on Friday. The rest of the weekend filled with social activities, informational sessions, and acclimation to the campus and it's resources. During this weekend students will receive their Student ID's and any other final paperwork needed before the start of the fall semester.
