New Student Orientation will introduce you to the traditions, expectations, programs and services of WVSU and assist you in selecting your first semester class schedule. Attendance and participation at a new student orientation program is required for all new first year and transfer students. Orientation provides you with the information and access to the resources you need to have a successful college experience.

Parents and other supporters are also invited to attend orientation to learn more about how you can support your student. Those who have attended orientation find it to be an informative and rewarding experience. Students and parents will follow different schedules during orientation sessions. Additional detailed information, including a program agenda and campus map, will be emailed to you prior to any orientation event.
