Register For Summer Orientation

Summer Orientation Update

We have made the difficult decision to hold our Summer Orientation sessions virtually for our new students and families. We made this decision based on guidance from health officials and our commitment to doing everything we can to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

While we are disappointed that we can’t host Orientation on campus, we are very excited to connect with you through online experiences this summer! We are exploring opportunities for smaller in-person gatherings for our new Gators and their families as evolving public health guidance and conditions allow. We’ll share updates via your Allegheny email and this website.

All incoming students are required to register for a virtual Orientation session, which includes interactive presentations on two dates. Parents and families are also encouraged, but not required, to attend.

Your online Orientation experience will provide you with opportunities to build community virtually, help you learn about being a student at Allegheny College, and guide you through your academic advising and course registration process.
