It’s happening! You’re coming to UVM for two days in June where you’ll register for classes, stay overnight in a residence hall, meet with academic advisors, learn about getting involved, make some new friends and learn your way around campus.

Orientation is free and mandatory for first year students.

The fine print: UVM Orientation is required for all first year students and the cost of attending (with the exception of an early arrival fee) is covered by the acceptance fee paid to admissions.

Attendance waivers are granted only in the case of extreme hardship or emergency. Contact the Orientation Office for more information.



Disability / Health Requests

If you plan to request disability-related academic and/or Residential Life accommodations, you (and your family) are encouraged to attend an informational workshop during your Orientation session. To register, contact Student Accessibility Services (UVM’s Disability Service Office) at 802-656-7753 or
