  • What it means to be a college student 
  • Information on university and academic resources
  • University policy and procedures

  • The FDU and Florham Campus culture
  • Getting involved on campus

The orientations will include:

  • virtual presentations

  • interacting with current students
  • interacting with faculty 
  • interacting with staff

Orientation Checklist

Step 1: Register!

Use our online registration form to let us know which orientation date you would prefer to attend. The earlier you register for orientation, the more likely you will receive your first choice. When providing us with your preference, please rate ALL the orientation sessions that would work for you and your family. Space at orientation sessions can be limited.

Step 2: Schedule Planning Guides

After you register for the new student orientation, be sure to complete a Schedule Guide. The course scheduling guide is likely the most important form you will fill out before orientation. We use this form to create your personalized fall course schedule. Carefully read the directions and fill out the form in its entirety. If you have any questions while filling out the guide, please contact your college’s advising office. Finally, in order to guarantee that you receive your schedule during orientation, please submit the guide by May 15. The sooner the better.

Step 3: Welcome to the Florham Campus

We look forward to meeting you online this summer.
