Orientation is your first official event as a Lancer! Get ready to meet other new students and learn about campus offices and the services they provide. You'll also receive your class schedule!

Orientation Registration

You will register for Orientation online via instructions sent to your personal email account. The instructions will be sent within one week of the date that your Admissions deposit is received and processed.

When registering, you will complete an academic questionnaire about the courses you may want to take while at Longwood. It is important to answer the questions as honestly as possible since your answers will be used by a faculty member who will create your fall course schedule. Completion of the academic questionnaire is required before an Orientation date can be scheduled. Your answers on the Academic Questionnaire assist the Registrar’s Office and the Department Chair for your Major in crafting your schedule for the fall 2017 semester. 

Our questionnaire takes away the stress of registering for classes while allowing for you to express your interests and assures that you are on track to graduate as you begin your education at Longwood. You can review the questions here:
