First-Year Orientation

Orientation leader with new students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Virginia Tech and Welcome to the Hokie Nation. We can’t wait to meet you!

Currently the orientation registration system is closed. An email will be sent to your Virginia Tech email account when the registration system opens. This email will include a registration link for your orientation session. Please note: This link is the only way to sign up for an orientation session.

First-Year Orientation takes place annually from June though July. There are multiple sessions over this period. Attending a session provides you with the opportunity to meet other incoming Hokies, register for classes, learn about your new Hokie community and receive your Hokie Passport ID card.

Your specific orientation session is based on when advisors from your academic department/major are present to assist you with registration. As a result, you may have fewer than 16 sessions from which to choose.

If you have any questions, contact New Student and Family Programs at 540-231-3284 or

We look forward to meeting you this summer!
