January Orientation

Greetings new and transfer students!

The Lycoming College community looks forward to welcoming you and helping you achieve a successful first year.  Students who will begin classes in January are required to attend New Student Orientation on January 10, 2016.  Orientation will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. in the Bell Lobby (located in the western end of the Academic Center- on the opposite side of the building from the Snowden Library).  Once your confirmation deposit has been recieved by the Office of Admissions, you should recieve a letter in the mail with your username and password to access the orientation website. You will use this information to complete the registration process (see required tasks below) in advance of your New Student Orientation.

If you are ready to complete the registration process, please make sure you have at least one hour AND you have the letter sent by the Dean of First Year Students, which includes your login name, password and instructions to access the myLyco student portal.
