Orientation & Registration Programs

First Year students entering Longwood in Fall 2015 must attend one of our Summer Orientation & Registration sessions.

First Year Orientation & Registration dates: 

  • Friday, May 29, 2015 (SESSION FULL)
  • Saturday, May 30, 2015 (SESSION FULL)
  • Monday, June 1, 2015 (SESSION FULL)
  • Wednesday, June 3, 2015
  • Friday, June 5, 2015
  • Saturday, June 6, 2015

Orientation & Registration is a full-day event with check-in beginning around 7:30am and the program concluding between 5:30pm and 6:00pm.

All incoming students attending Orientation in May and June have equal opportinity to register for classes, housing, and a meal plan. Students attending earlier sessions do not have a greater chance at getting specific courses than students attending the last session.

At Orientation & Registration, incoming students have the opportunity to hear from various campus offices about the services that they provide, as well as requirements they will need for their first semester, such as laptops. During the program, students register for their Fall 2015 classes.

There is a transitional fee of $165 associated with Orientation & Registration. This covers all of the First Year Experience initiatives that we provide to support students' transitions, including all of the staff, materials, meals, programs, and advising during Orientation & Registration and New Lancer Days. Incoming students may pay the transitional fee in three ways:
