  1. How do I register for Orientation?

    To reserve your space, 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. For an additional $50 per family member we can include on-campus accommodations (for June sessions only). Return to insidepacific to add your guests to the Orientation. 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

      1. When can I move into my fall semester housing assignment?

        Students attending the August Orientation session will move into fall semester housing on August 18th. Students who attended a June Orientation session will move into their fall semester housing on August 21st. Students should receive a Housing Packet with additional information around mid-July. TOP

        1. 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
