Summer Orientation 

Summer Orientation is your gateway to Wingate. During your Summer Orientation Session, you will talk to faculty members about classes, meet peers and get to know other students, register for your fall classes, and much more! You will register for your Summer Orientation Date on your New Student Checklist. Summer Orientation will start at 9 a.m. (Check-In begins at 8 a.m.) and goes to 3 p.m.

What if you can't attend?

Summer Orientation is required for all incoming students. However, if you are an F1 Visa International Student, or cannot make it to Summer Orientation due to other travel constraints, please email for more information on make-up virtual orientation sessions.
