First-Year and Transfer Orientation and Transition Experience

Orientation leader with new students

Welcome to Virginia Tech!

Get ready to learn what you need to know about being a Hokie! We will be offering a hybrid orientation program this year. Virtual orientation will take place over the summer from June 14 through July 23. This programming will consist of asynchronous online task lists and videos in combination with live synchronous orientation sessions.

When you arrive to campus this fall, there will be an extended orientation program, Weeks of Welcome, that will happen in-person. When registration opens in April, you should choose dates that work best with your schedule. At that time, you can also register your family members to participate in our Family Orientation program where they can learn what to expect, meet members of the Hokie Nation, discover resources and programs, and learn how they can support you during your time at Virginia Tech.

We can’t wait to meet you!
