Orientation is your first official event as a Lancer! Get ready to meet other new transfer students and learn about campus offices and the services they provide. You'll also receive your class schedule!
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.
Please bring a copy of your unofficial transcript from the previous institution(s) you've attended. This will be helpful during advising and course registration.
There is no up-front fee to attend Orientation; the cost is covered in the incoming student transitional fee of $225 and is billed to the student account. Students are invited to bring guests, but must register them in advance of the Orientation program. There is no additional fee for guests.
Orientation sessions begin at 8 a.m. and conclude around 5 p.m. Parking is available in the Wynne Parking Lot and shuttle services is available to the check-in location.
