Wayne State First-Year Student Orientation

    Welcome to Wayne State! We're excited you're joining our Warrior community this winter semester! If you have been admitted for the spring/summer or fall 2023 semester, our reservation system opens in late January 2023.

    If you are an incoming transfer student, please visit our Transfer Student Orientation page.

    Our Orientation Team is thrilled to offer on-campus, in-person orientation sessions as well as virtual sessions this winter. Below you will find two different ways to fulfill your orientation requirement:

    "Online" means that the orientation program will be offered virtually through Zoom.

    "United States - Michigan" means that the orientation program is offered in person on Wayne State's midtown Detroit campus. You'll really have the full experience of what it's like to be a Wayne State student when you choose this option.

    Attendance at one of our upcoming orientation sessions is required for all incoming first-year students. Regardless of the type of program you choose to attend, you will be added to the Canvas Orientation course that is filled with really great information.  

    Please note that in order to participate in the in-person orientation sessions, you and any guests, will complete the Campus Daily Screener on the morning of your program. Please review all updates to Wayne State's Coronavirus policies online at https://wayne.edu/coronavirus.

    Important note about logging in to schedule your orientation session

    Use the log in information you created when you submitted your application to Wayne State to reserve your orientation experience. This is most likely your personal email account coupled with a password that you created. DO NOT use your Academica account credentials to log in - it won't work.

    Please reach out to us if you have any questions - we're happy to help! Our email address is orientation@wayne.edu and our office phone number is 313-577-9019. See you soon!
