Freshman orientation details
Freshman orientation sessions for students entering fall 2015 begin in the spring. Those freshmen that are admitted for the Winter 2015 or Spring/Summer 2015 semesters should register for a transfer orientation session. We look forward to meeting you and making your transition to Wayne State as smooth as possible.
During the orientation program, you’ll learn about campus resources, meet with your academic advisor and register for your first semester of classes at Wayne State. The day is planned with your success in mind.
- Get in the habit of checking your Wayne State email on a regular basis.
- If you need help with your AccessID or password, call the Computing & Information Technology (C&IT) Help Desk at 313-577-4778.
Please note that activities include extensive computer use and walking. If you have a mobility limitation, hearing impairment, or disability that limits your ability to read information or register for classes online, please write to us at email@example.com at least 10 days prior to your orientation date so that we can make arrangement with our Student Disability Services office for accomodations. With advanced notification, we can insure that appropriate accomodations are in place for you.
Parents, family members and guests are welcome to attend the free Parent Orientation program that takes place at the same time as your session. Be sure to register those attendees at this time.
All freshman orientation sessions take place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. You are expected to attend the entire program.
Wayne State University is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Those who would like to request an accommodation due to a special need or condition should write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests should be made 10 days prior to your scheduled orientation session. Requests received after this date will be honored whenever possible.
Students will automatically be billed a $250 matriculation fee at the time tuition and fees are assessed, regardless of orientation program attendance. This fee covers the cost of orientation, graduation and commencement.
