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 full-day experience - either virtual or in-person - that includes the following.

  • Academic advising and registration for courses

  • Connecting with an Owl Team Leader, who is a current student and will answer your questions about Temple

  • Meeting other new students

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.

When will it happen?
First-year Orientation sessions will take place between June 20, 2022 and July 29, 2022 either in-person or on Zoom. Sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. 

NOTE: To be eligible to register for and participate in an in-person Orientation session, you must be compliant with the COVID-19 vaccine requirement. For more information about Temple's vaccination policies, including guidance on how you can upload your COVID-19 vaccine information, visit our Student Health Services website.
