First Year Students

Orientation & Registration Programs

First Year students entering Longwood in Spring 2016 must attend the following Orientation and Registration date listed below.

First Year Orientation & Registration dates: 

  • Saturday, January 16th, 2016

Please plan for the program to begin around 7:30 am and conclude by 6:00 pm.  Exact program times will be announced once available.

At Orientation & Registration, incoming students have the opportunity to hear from various campus offices about the services that they provide, as well as requirements they will need for their first semester, such as laptops. During the program, students register for their Spring 2016 classes.







Transitional Fee

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

Up to two guests per students are allowed to attend Orientation & Registration 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 recieve 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.
