New Student Orientation is so much more than just a campus tour and a meeting with your adviser. We work year-round to put together exceptional experiences to help new undergraduate students in their transition to RIT. Whether you’re a freshman or a transfer student, start by checking out our Pre-Orientation Programs. These optional programs are experiential in nature and each has a different focus to give you a chance to learn a new skill or get a jumpstart on your career. Pre-orientation programs occur at the end of August, just prior to the fall Orientation. Then, if you are an incoming freshman, transfer, family member, NTID student, graduate student, click on the appropriate link to learn more about the Orientation programs planned for you.
