New Student Orientation
After a summer of relaxing, working and getting ready for college, we have a few events to help all of our first year students prepare for the start of the semester.
Can’t wait for campus life to begin? Check out our Pre-Orientation program for a stronger start to your first year at Saint Peter’s.
Pre-orientation offers new first-year and transfer students like you a chance to connect with peers, faculty and staff around specialized topics before your first semester starts. Not only will you discover Jersey City and beyond, but you’ll also take your first steps toward becoming a member of the University community.
Join us June 23rd!
Peacock Prep Day is a mandatory one-day program for all first year students and their parents or guardians. During this event you will take care of registering for classes, meeting students, creating a financial plan and more! This is the time to get ready for the fall and receive your fall semester academic schedule, meet with a financial aid counselor for a final review of your tuition bill, and connect with campus resources to aid you and your family in the transition to university life.
In order to register for Peacock Prep Day students must first pay their tuition deposit.
Parents or guardians are strongly encouraged to join us at Peacock Prep Day. The parents’ program is separate from the students’ program. Sessions help prepare for the role of parenting a college student. Parents also learn about academic expectations and are introduced to Saint Peter’s important policies and processes.
New Student Orientation is when all new students will have an opportunity to connect to campus resources and opportunities for student success. The orientation team will provide all of the essential experiences.
