Orientation Programs


We are excited you are joining us in 2021! Whether you are coming to UVA as a first-year student or a transfer student, our Summer Orientation Programs will ensure that your transition to UVA is smooth and enjoyable. We cannot wait to welcome you!

For 2021, we will complete the summer portion of our program virtually. We recognize that this will not be the same orientation as previous years, but know that we will prioritize health and safety in addition to finding ways to deliver all of the information and support that you need as you start your time at UVA.

Our goals for our Summer Orientation Programs remain the same, new students will:

  • Explore the multiple paths to success at UVA, including both curricular and co-curricular opportunities.
  • Engage in meaningful conversations and build connections with peers and upper-class students. 
  • Learn more about resources, people, and places at UVA that will help you along the way.
  • Participate in academic advising and course enrollment through their respective school on enrollment.      


All new students attend Summer Orientation
