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. Orientation Programs
    1. Virtual Orientation is a one-day synchronous program offered by academic college or school via online platforms. 
    2. Online Orientation is an asynchronous online course offered through Canvas.  The online orientation is self-paced and can be completed beginning June 1st and must be completed prior to the start of the fall semester. 
    3. Freshman Campus Business Day is a three hour on-campus experience for students who need assistance completing items on their New Student Checklist.  
  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!
