First-year Orientation

As a new student, you will attend a First-year Orientation to meet new people, learn how you can get involved as a Temple student, and register for courses.

Curious about First-year Orientation? It’s a half-day experience that includes the following.

  • Academic advising and registration for courses

We’ll also have other opportunities for you to meet new people and learn about campus resources throughout the summer and at the start of the semester as part of Weeks of Welcome.

We want to ensure that ALL students are able to fully participate in Orientation. If there are questions or concerns about how we will deliver orientation content, please do not hesitate to contact us at If you will require accommodations for placement assessments or your advising session, please visit the Disability Resources and Services website for instructions on requesting accommodations:
