Summer Welcome Days

We are excited to have you join our University community. Summer Welcome Days provide you with the information you need to make the most of your Rowan experience. 

Summer Welcome Days are for first-year students beginning classes in the fall term, and are one-day campus visits in June or July. Summer Welcome Days are a requiredon-campus, in-person experience. Both students who will be living on campus or commuting to Rowan attend Summer Welcome Days. This allows all students to experience our campus community prior to the fall term, and time on campus to meet other incoming first-year students while exploring campus resources. 

Students will also have some Online Education Requirements to complete in addition to the in-person orientation experience.

  • Session I: Tuesday, June 25, 2024 
  • Session II: Thursday, June 27, 2024
  • Session III: Tuesday, July 9, 2024

Summer Welcome Days Reservations

Summer Welcome Days are a great opportunity to learn more about your new University community. Campus offices and departments come together to welcome new students and their parents & adult family members to share information about student resources and campus policies & expectations at these few select times of the year. Don't miss this opportunity - it only happens once in your college career!

Prepare for Summer Welcome Days

  1. Set up your NetID and DUO. If you haven't already done so, visit netid.rowan.edu, click the "Other Login" button to set up your NetID for the first time. Follow these instructions for more help.

  2. Stay up to date using your New Student Checklist. Log in to your Admissions Status Page to view your personalized checklist and complete important tasks to be ready for your first semester at Rowan.

  3. Confirm your major. You are eligible for academic advising for the major in which you were offered admission to Rowan University. This major is listed in your admissions materials and the Summer Welcome Days invitation email. If you would like to change your major, please email admissions@rowan.edu with your name, Banner ID number, and desired major prior to completing your Summer Welcome Days reservation.

  4. Reserve your Summer Welcome Day! Dates with space available for your major will be shown in the event reservation system. Summer Welcome Days registration is connected to your Admissions Status Page, and uses the same login information. Make sure to login using your personal email address and password, not with your Rowan NetID. Please reserve your Summer Welcome Days date as soon as possible for best selection of dates as sessions do fill up.

  5. Attend Summer Welcome Day! After your Summer Welcome Day, continue working on any remaining New Student Checklist items and Online Education Requirements.

  6. Get ready for Fall Orientation: Welcome Week in the fall. Rowan has a tradition of welcoming all students back to campus before the start of each semester. During Fall Orientation: Welcome Week, you will find programs and activities to give you a taste of campus life and connect with current student leaders. 

If you are unable to attend one of the on-campus Summer Welcome Days sessions, please contact our office at 856-256-4041 to make arrangements for the final fall Welcome Day in August or our online orientation program.

Parent & Family Orientation

For each Summer Welcome Days session we offer a concurrent Parent & Family Orientation program. Students and their parents & adult family members follow separate orientation schedules.

Here's what you will experience by participating in the online Parent & Family Orientation:

  • an overview of the University;
  • presentations about your student's adjustment to college life at Rowan;
  • information about financing college, safety, and Rowan Thrive Well-Being;
  • and information about commuting or living on campus.

The Rowan student must make Parent & Family Orientation reservations as part of their Summer Welcome Days reservation process. Please discuss with your student whether or not you would like to participate in Parent & Family Orientation. The Rowan student will be asked to enter the number of guests participating in orientation on the online system as well as a contact phone number and e-mail address for any parents or adult family members participating.
