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.
Please bring a copy of your unofficial transcript from the previous institution(s) you've attended. This will be helpful for 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 and must register them in advance of the Orientation program. There is no additional fee for guests.
Virtual Options are available.
Before Orientation, we'll send you information through Longwood Live Mail about how to register online for courses in your major. Then you'll meet with your department chair, or a department faculty representative, to talk about your degree plan.
Your department chair may reach out to you first, to help build the best schedule, but either way, we'll be in touch. Please check your Longwood Live Mail regularly so that you can register for classes.
