First-Year Orientation


Get Ready for June 2023 Orientation!

Congratulations on being accepted to the University of Mary Washington!

Orientation at UMW is two-day, in-person experience for first-year students that provides our newest eagles with a great opportunity to meet fellow classmates, get familiar with campus resources, prepare for course registration, and get connected with our community long before classes start in August.  Summer orientation is held on multiple days in the month of June and is mandatory for first-year and transfer students. This experience will equip you to succeed in college.

There is no up front cost for students for the Orientation program as it will be billed to your UMW account. You may bring guests with you but they must be registered to attend there will be a $40 fee for each guest over the age of 7.
