New Student Orientation

Summer Orientation 2012


Class of 2016

All students are required to attend Summer Orientation and are asked to select from one of the six sessions offered in July. These sessions are designed to help you prepare for your first quarter at Santa Clara University. You will have an opportunity to meet fellow students, learn more about your Residential Learning Community, become better acquainted with the campus, and register for fall quarter classes. Attending Summer Orientation in July allows you the opportunity to get a jumpstart on your time at SCU.

A limited number of spaces are also available in Orientation Session 7 (September 12 and 13, 2012) for students with special circumstances. Requests to attend this session must be sent to before May 1, 2012. Please include any documentation (flight itinerary, proof of employment) with your request. The Office of New Student Programs will begin reviewing requests on April 11, 2012. All requests will be reviewed in the order received. Because space in this session is limited and not all requests will be approved, students are asked to sign up for one of the six July sessions above. If your request is approved, we will move you to the September orientation session and send a new confirmation.

Students meeting these criteria should sign up to attend Orientation Session 7 on September 12-13, 2012.
