New Student Orientation will introduce you to the traditions, expectations, programs and services of WVSU and assist you in selecting your first semester class schedule. Attendance and participation at a new student orientation program is required for all new first year and transfer students. Orientation provides you with the information and access to the resources you need to have a successful college experience.

Welcome Days are also an important part of your transition to WVSU. Welcome Days are held from August 14th - August 22nd. There are many events and activities for you to participate in. You will also have opportunities to explore everything our campus has to offer. All of the activities and events on Sunday, August 16th and State Stride on Tuesday, August 18th are required. Your participation in these events is not only mandatory; it is an important part of the overall orientation experience. Check back for a full listing of all of the Welcome Days activities.
Parents and other supporters are also invited to attend orientation to learn more about how you can support your student. Those who have attended orientation find it to be an informative and rewarding experience. Students and parents will follow different schedules during orientation sessions. Additional detailed information, including a program agenda and campus map, will be emailed to you prior to any orientation event.

A $40 orientation fee will be assessed to each student account on or after July 1, 2015.  Students attending any orientation session from May 29th through August 15th will notice the $40 fee on their bill. The fee is required for all new and transfer students attending orientation.
