Orientation Programs

Welcome to Rowan University! We are glad that you have chosen to continue your education at Rowan University!

Due to the unforeseen circumstances with COVID-19, we had to move our student orientations online for this summer. While we would love nothing more than to welcome you and your family to campus, keeping you and your family safe is our biggest priority. Please rest assured that we have been working diligently to create an online orientation course that will introduce you to our campus and to the offices & departments that are critical to your success as a Rowan student, and to make sure that you’re ready for the start of the fall semester.

Orientation Program Expectations

We expect students to make their own reservations for orientation (and to make the parent & family reservations as well). Students are responsible for managing their Rowan Network and Banner account information and keeping this information safe and secure. Students should not share this information with anyone in order to protect the confidentiality of student records. See the complete Acceptable Use Policy for more information.

We expect students to particiapte in all orientation activities. All orientation sessions are required and programming is specifically designed to assist students with their academic and social transition to the University.

It is our goal for students to build a relationship with their advisors as well as learn the necessary skills to register on their own in future terms. Therefore, we expect students to register for classes with the assistance of the professional academic advisors only, and not their parents or family members.

We expect students to follow all University policies, as well as all applicable laws and ordinances, including rules prohibiting alcohol and drug use. Failure to comply with these rules can result in dismissal from orientation without being permitted to register for classes, termination of fall residence hall contract, further disciplinary action by the University, and/or legal consequences such as arrests, tickets and fines, and future appearances in local courts.

Parent & Family Orientation

Parent & Family Orientation will now be online.

The Rowan student must make Parent & Family Orientation reservations as part of their orientation reservation process. Please discuss with your student whether or not you would like information about Parent & Family Orientation. The Rowan student will be asked to enter guest(s) information including a contact phone number and e-mail address in the online system.
