Orientation Fee Information

The Student Orientation Fee is a one-time, mandatory fee of $140 for all new students. The Student Orientation Fee gives students access to all orientation and transition services, including the live orientation sessions, access to an orientation leader, access to asynchronous online content, and all other transition programs, materials, and services.

Please Note: the $100 Enrollment Confirmation Deposit is separate from the Student Orientation Fee.

The Student Orientation Fee will be applied to all students regardless of their attendance at orientation. The deadline to pay the student orientation fee is July 31, 2024, along with your other tuition and fees. You do not need to pay the fee before attending your live orientation session.

While orientation fee waivers are not available, your financial aid award could help pay the orientation fee. When you sign up for orientation, the fee is added to your account balance. This fee is not automatically covered by financial aid. However, once tuition, fees, and, if applicable, housing and meal plans are paid with financial aid, any remaining funds are returned to the student. You can then use this refund to help pay the cost of orientation. To see if you have enough financial aid to cover this balance, please attend the Financial Aid drop-in Zoom hours

Guest Fee

The Orientation program strives to create an inclusive environment for students and their supporters. During your time with us, you will have the opportunity to participate in staff and student panels, attend informational sessions, go on tours, and ask questions.

To attend an Orientation session, guests must be registered by their student and pay a $40 guest fee. This fee must be paid in full before your Orientation date.

We understand that plans can change, so we offer refunds for guests who cancel at least two weeks before their scheduled session. If a refund request is received within two weeks of a session, it will not be processed, and a fee will be assessed per ticket.

If you need to change your orientation session dates, we allow the transfer of fees to a future date.
