Your school will send you information about online orientation, along with other admission information. Please contact your school's Office of Student Affairs for more information, or check back here later!

In-Person Orientation
In-person orientation will take place on July 10th - 12th. The first day of Orientation will begin with an All-School Orientation session and a Peer Roundtable Luncheon. Peer Roundtables are a Q&A Panel with upperclassmen from your school where you can ask any questions you may have about academics, extracurricular activities, or island life! Students will then break out into their individual schools/programs for the remainder of the orientation week.  

Please check back here at a later date for the finalized Orientation schedules.
