2013 New Student Orientation
New First Year or Transfer Students
(Less than 30 credits hours)

Saturday, August 17th through Tuesday, August 20th
We believe that orientation programs are the foundation for your success and, therefore, require all new first-year and transfer students with less than 30 credit hours to attend all orientation events.

If an emergency or situation arises and you are unable to attend, you must contact the office of Student Administrative Services (815-226-4062) or the Jane Addams Center for Civic Engagement (815-394-5143) immediately.


Throughout Orientation you will:

  • Learn about academic expectations, including the knowledge, skills and values that contribute to your success at Rockford University
  • Develop new friendships
  • Participate in a variety of events
  • Connect with other new students
  • Have Fun!
