- New Student Orientation
Orientation 2020 will be offered as a hybrid of virtual and in-person programs throughout the summer. Virtual components will begin in June followed by on-campus programming that will take place during the week prior to the start of fall classes, which begin on August 31.
The New Student Orientation Program is carefully designed to help entering undergraduate students become acquainted with the people and resources who can help support their transition to Barry University.
Step 1 of New Student Orientation begins by submitting your enrollment deposit.
Congrats on taking this major first step and committing to become a Buccaneer! Our team is ready to work closely with you to check off important tasks to ensure a smooth start to your first semester.
Step 2 of New Student Orientation begins virtually on June 16.
During this phase, undergraduate students will participate in live virtual sessions facilitated by faculty, staff, and Orientation Leaders, as well as view curated Orientation content on their own time. Students will also meet virtually with an academic advisor to plan their course schedule for the fall semester. They also have the option to chat with an academic advisor if they have not done so already.
Step 3 of New Student Orientation begins in person in August.
Resident students will move in August 24-27. You will receive an email from Housing and Residence Life when your Housing assignment and move-in date is set.
All incoming undergraduate students must register for New Student Orientation weekend on August 28-30 through the myBarry portal. You will experience an official welcome by the University President, participate in freshman traditions, and create fun memories with your fellow students.
Your First Year Experience will continue during Welcome Week and throughout the year with special programs designed just for you!
Mark your calendars! Fall classes will begin August 31.
