Registration information will be mailed to prospective students in January. Parents attend on the same date as their student. The Program Schedule gives an overview of the schedule for the day for parents.
If you will need on-campus housing accommodations, during orientation, please use our on-line reservation form on the Office of Housing and Residence Life website.
