Fall Semester Admission
For Fall Admits, there are two parts to our program:
- CORE – Is an over-night program typically offered in the second week of June. New students will register in advance to attend one of the multiple two day sessions offered. For those for whom travel to campus is too prohibitive, there are similar programs and course registration that can be accomplished remotely.
- New Student Orientation (August Program) – Occurs in August, just before the start of classes. This is a multi-day program that involves all students. Registration is not required as all students are required to participate. In advance of this program some students may choose to take part in one of our optional Pre-Orientation programs that are schedule immediately preceding the larger program.
Spring Semester Admission
The cohort of new students admitted for the Spring Term will attend January Program. This program is mandatory for all new students and takes place in the days proceeding the start of the Spring semester. This typically smaller group allows for a more intimate experience as you are welcomed by student leaders, staff, and faculty who will share resources and quickly acclimate you to campus
