Commuter students who are cleared before Aug. 1 are welcome to check-in for orientation in the Grand Salon on Aug. 21 from 12 – 3 p.m. After 3:30 p.m., all cleared students' orientation check-in (undergraduate, domestic, residential and commuter) will be held at the Vaughn Center Information Desk.
All students cleared on Aug. 15 or later must first check-in for orientation in Fletcher Lounge before arriving at their assigned residence halls.

Please don't forget to bring your photo ID to complete the check-in process!
Students may spend
time waiting if they arrive before their assigned time.
Throughout the day on Wednesday, Aug. 20, students are encouraged to complete
all check-in related tasks as outlined on their check-in
envelope. These times will be announced later this summer. A mandatory
residence hall floor meeting will occur in the evening for all residential
