New Student Orientation - WCU


Change in January 21 Orientation Guest Policy

In light of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases due to the Omicron variant, the January 21, 2022, new student orientation will be for students only.  We regret that new Rams will no longer be permitted to bring a guest to the program. Please find more information on our January Orientation page.

Additional Virtual Orientation Program Added

New Student Programs will host a second virtual new student orientation from 10 AM to 1 PM on Friday, February 4, 2022, for students who are unable to attend the January 14 or January 21 programs. Please use the button to the right to register.

January Orientation Registration is Open!

Orientations for new Golden Rams starting in spring 2022 will be January 14 (virtual) and January 21 (in-person) and February 4 (virtual).  Click the button to the right to register for the option that works best for you!

Note:  You register through your admissions portal, so log in with the email and password you used when you applied to WCU.
