Orientation Registration for GEAR UP students

GEAR UP students are eligible to have Orientation for Freshman Students registration fees for themselves and their families covered by GEAR UP.  Registration covers the costs of all meals and lodging during the 2 1/2-day event.

Orientation registration is different for GEAR UP students than it is for other incoming students. Contact GEAR UP for more details on how to get your Orientation Registration fees paid!

Orientation Lodging for Parent/Family 

The student's orientation registration fee includes on-campus lodging for Monday and Tuesday nights of orientation sessions #1, #2, and #3 in June or July.  If a parent/family member needs lodging for those dates as well, GEAR UP is happy to cover those on-campus lodging costs. Simply reach out to [email protected] to request parent or family members' lodging.  We are sorry, but parent or family lodging on campus is unavailable during orientation session #4 in August. 

We are excited forGEAR UP students asthey begin their college journeys and look forward to seeing all of you at New Student Orientation!
