Welcome! We are thrilled to welcome you to the University of Virginia.
Orientation & New Student Programs helps first-year and incoming transfer students successfully adjust to academic and social life at the University through targeted initiatives and programs:
Transitioning to college is a process! For Summer 2021, new students can expect to participate in a series of virtual events designed to assist them with their transition to the University. Beginning at the end of June, incoming students can expect a schedule of programs and resources that will support the academic and social aspects of starting at UVA. Each school of enrollment will reach out to students with the specifics of their advising process and enrollment dates. Additionally, undergraduate Orientation Leaders and university partners are excited to welcome you and lead you through sessions intended to build community and provide information on what to expect as you begin their time at UVA.
New Graduate Students can access a wealth of information about getting settled in Charlottesville with the Grad Guide. Each school, department, and program has its own set of welcome and orientation activities for new graduate students.
