New Student Orientation
Pacific's New Student Orientation is designed to help with your transition into our community. We want to welcome you and give you an opportunity to access the information needed to get you off to a great start. All new undergraduate students, Transfer and First-Year, participate in New Student Orientation. Our Orientation Leaders and Staff are ready to assist you and answer all of your questions about classes, campus life, and other exciting opportunities at Pacific.
First-Year and Transfer Students
New Student Orientation is a mandatory program for all incoming students to Pacific. Due to the changes in light of COVID-19, all new students, Transfer and First-Year, will be participating in New Student Orientation together. There are New Student Orientation sessions available in June, July, and August. Orientation Leaders, faculty, and staff will introduce you to life at Pacific and prepare you to make the best academic and social choices for your college career at University of the Pacific.
Join us for Family Member Mondays, four virtual sessions where you can learn more about how you can support your student’s transition to Pacific. Staff and student representatives from various departments will share how they will support your student and what the Pacific experience is like.
