First-Year Orientation

Orientation leader with new students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Virginia Tech! We can’t wait to meet you!

Orientation for summer 2020 is an online multistep program that will provide you with important information and opportunities to get to know your new Hokie community. You can meet new and current students, learn about student and academic life, be mentored by an Orientation team leader, and more.

The online experience includes pre-orientation modules, a virtual orientation session on a date that you select when you register, and post-orientation modules. The first required pre-orientation module will be available on May 26, 2020. For the virtual Orientation, we are offering multiple virtual sessions during June and July. You should choose the session date that works best with your schedule and allows you to engage in all the program has to offer. Available sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis, so make sure to register early. You will also be able to register family members as guests so they can attend.

If you have any questions, contact New Student and Family Programs at 540-231-3284 or During live Orientation, virtual help desks will be open from 10:30 a.m.-noon and 1:15-5:15. Students can find the link to the help desks in their confirmation email.
