    1. How do I register for Orientation?

      Log in to  InsidePacific to confirm your acceptance, register for orientation, and sign up for on campus housing. Please complete your enrollment confirmation, and pay your confirmation deposit, housing reservation deposit, and Orientation fee. At this time you will also be asked to choose an Orientation session. TOP

    2. Can my parents and/or family attend Orientation? 

      Yes, we have a specific parent and family Orientation - the cost is $170 per family member attending. Visit our Family Orientation page for more information and a mail-in registration form. Parents and family must attend the same Orientation session as their student. TOP

      1. Do I have to stay overnight during Orientation?

        Students attending an Orientation session in June are required to stay in on-campus housing during the two-day Orientation session. Students attending the Orientation session in August will move into their on-campus housing prior to Orientation. Students living off-campus and attending the Orientation session in August will return home for the night. TOP

      2. Where do I stay on campus during June Orientation?
        During June, when you check into your Orientation Session, you will receive an on-campus housing assignment and usually a roommate for the night. This room is not necessarily the room you will be placed in for the Fall, and it is normally not the same roommate either. Families attending a June Orientation Session may stay in on-campus housing for an additional $50 per person. TOP  
         
      3. When can I move into my fall semester housing assignment?
        Students attending the August Orientation session will move into fall semester housing the day before Orientation startsStudents who attended a June Orientation session will move into their fall semester housing on August 24th. Students should receive a Housing Packet with additional information around mid-July. TOP

      4. What should I bring to Orientation?
        Pacific will provide all linens during June Orientation Sessions (sheets, blanket, pillow and towels), however students can bring their own items if they prefer. Suggested items include, but are not limited to: comfortable clothes and shoes (layers are always a good choice), sweater or light jacket, alarm clock, toiletries, shower shoes, valid driver's license or other photo ID, and student ID number and Pacific log-in information. For more information please visit What to Bring. TOP

      5. When can I get my Orientation schedule?
        The Orientation schedule is available the morning of your Orientation session during check-in. TOP

      6. Where can I park at Pacific during Orientation?
