We are excited to have you join our University community. Orientation provides you with the information you need to make the most of your Rowan experience.
Here's what you will experience at orientation:
- Academic Success workshop and a brief overview of General Education and other graduation requirements;
- academic advising;
- time to build you schedule and register for fall term classes;
- opportunities to connect with other students;
- an introduction to Rowan student services and involvement opportunities.
We will begin accepting reservations for Transfer Orientation on Monday, March 30.
Transfer Orientation for students beginning classes in the fall term will be held Wednesday, May 20, Thursday, June 18, or Monday & Tuesday June 22 & 23 (overnight orientation program in Rowan Boulevard). Students must reserve a spot to attend orientation in advance. We utilize an online reservation system that displays specific dates available according to major. Not every date may be offered for all majors, and sessions will close when maximum capacities are reached. Specific date(s) for your academic major will be presented to you when you make orientation reservations online. Please use the orientation reservation system to view dates currently available for your major(s).
An optional Parent & Family Orientation program is held concurrently with Transfer Student Orientation, but students and their parents & adult family members will follow separate orientation schedules.
All new students are required to attend orientation. If you are unable to attend one of the on-campus orientation sessions, please contact our office at 856-256-4041 to make arrangements for registration in August and our online orientation program. If you previously attended Rowan and were accepted as a readmit, you are not required to attend orientation, but are encouraged to do so to learn about any policies that may have changed or new resources available to you.
Don't forget to bring your credit evaluation and/or copies of your transcripts. You may view your transfer credits at the "Transcript" link found at http://sinfo.rowan.edu
