Freshman Orientation

Summer Orientation

Register for Orientation

We are excited to have you join our University community. Orientation provides you with the information you need to make the most of your Rowan experience.


Orientation includes three components:

  1. New Student Checklist: Your New Student Checklist is your key to a successful transition to Rowan. Please make sure that you are completing all items in the checklist and make note of any dates and deadlines.  
  2. Online Orientation: All students will be registered for our Online Orientation program in Canvas by mid-June. Our online orientation program is designed to introduce you to our Rowan Thrive initiative. We will walk you through each of the six dimensions of well-being. You will learn about the different offices and departments on campus that will help you achieve well-being as a Rowan student. Please note that all students must complete this program. If you do not complete the program, a hold will be placed on your account that will prevent you from registering for spring semester courses.
  3. Welcome Week: Rowan has a tradition of welcoming all students back to campus before the start of each semester. During Welcome Week, you will find programs and activities to give you a taste of campus life and connect with current student leaders. Our website will have the most updated schedule - check back often throughout the summer as we update it with more events! 

Online Freshmen Orientation

All new students are required to complete orientation. Students will receive an email in mid-June with instructions for completing the online orientaiton course in Canvas.  The online orientaiton course is self-paced and should be completing before the beginning of the fall semster.

Parent & Family Orientation

Due to the unforeseen circumstances with COVID-19, we had to move our Parent and Family Orientation 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 program that will provide you with a valuable orientation experience from your home.
