January Orientation

Students entering UMW as first-time attendees in the spring semester of 2021 are required to attend January orientation.  The program is held on January 19th but students who are residing on campus may move-in early to their residence halls.  At orientation, students will learn about resources available to them as they transition to academic and student life at UMW, begin meeting peers and upper-class students, and generally start to become acquainted with activities that they can be involved in at UMW.

New students may begin to set up their spring 2021 course schedules with Academic Services now.  Academic Services may be reached at 540-654-1010. 

Additional information regarding the January Orientation program will be available soon, including a detailed schedule. There is no up front cost for students for the Orientation program, as it will be billed to each student’s account.

Students may bring guests to orientation. Each guest can register and there will be no fee. Guest information can be changed at no additional cost.

Registration for January 2021 Orientation is open now. To register for January Orientation, please visit Orientation Registration.
