New Student Orientation

All incoming students will take part in New Student Orientation, facilitated before fall classes begin. Orientation is designed to support your transition to Dartmouth—academically, personally, and socially – while allowing you to create deep connections to the College. New Student Orientation is committed to recognizing the many paths taken by students before they arrive, and the multiple ways to experience and engage with our community once they begin their Dartmouth journey. Students who intend to enroll at Dartmouth will be contacted about all new student programs in late May.

Members of the Class of 2028: The dates for your required New Student Orientation are not yet determined. Orientation includes arrival/move-in and First-Year Trips (if you choose to participate) as well as many important programs that will introduce you to the Dartmouth community and your classmates. Orientation dates will be announced in the spring.
