January Orientation

Greetings new and transfer students!

All new and transfer students are required to attend an orientation session. At orientation, you will learn more about our campus, register for classes, meet your classmates, get to know the resources and people who are here to help you achieve your goals, and find out the answers to your questions as you prepare for the start of the spring semester.

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 13, 2019. After you send in your confirmation deposit, you will receive materials (in the U.S. mail, as well as email) with information about tasks that need to be completed prior to orientation. These materials will begin going on on December 3, 2018.
