Orientation information and a schedule of events will be available at Orientation Check-In.

Fall 2019 schedule will be posted here and emailed to incoming students.

All students will receive a final schedule with detailed information including session locations at check-in.

New Resident Students living on campus will be contacted closer to move-in days. After hours move-in requires students to contact the RA - Residence Assistant- on duty. Students may also move in the morning before Orientation begins. Resident students have required Orientation activities.

Orientation check-in takes place on the Tompkins Cortland main campus in Dryden.

Many College offices have extended open hours during Orientation and Welcome Week so students can take care of everything they need prior to the start of classes.
