Online registration for our July and August sessions is live. All students who still need to attend Orientation have been contacted via their Live Mail account with instructions on how to register. Students who have recently paid their $400 Admissions Deposit may need to wait up to 1 week after the deposit has been processed to receive this e-mail with instructions.
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 attending the July and August Orientation sessions will pay the transitional fee online using a credit card when registering.
Up to two guests per students are allowed to attend Orientation & Registration at no additional fee. Additional guests are allowed to attend for a fee of $25 each to cover the cost of meals during the day. Additional guest fees may be paid in cash, check, or money order payable to Longwood University on the day of Orientation at check-in.
Please note: Students who have already paid the transition fee or have received a transition fee waiver will require special instructions to bypass the requirement to pay online with a credit card. These instructions should be send to the student's Live Mail account.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of First Year Experience & Family Programs at 434.395.2414 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
