Transitional Fee

There is a transitional fee associated with Orientation. 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 and New Lancer Days. Incoming students attending the January Orientation session will pay a transitional fee of $165 online using a credit card when registering.

Up to two guests per students are allowed to attend Orientation 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.

Please note: Students who receive 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 firstyear@longwood.edu.
