- New Student Orientation
Orientation 2020 will be offered as a hybrid of virtual and in-person programs throughout the summer as we prepare to welcome you to the fall Orientation Weekend taking place on August 28-30.
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.
Congratulations 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 takes place virtually throughout the summer.
During this phase, undergraduate students will explore 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 have the option to chat with an academic advisor if they have not done so already.
Step 3 of New Student Orientation begins with an individualized experience on August 28 with the option of virtual or interactive small group sessions.
Resident students will move in August 24-26. 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. Dr. Mike Allen, President of Barry University, will officially welcome you as you begin to explore our freshmen traditions and create fun memories with your fellow students.
Your First Year Experience will continue during Welcome Week (August 31-September 6) and throughout the year with special programs designed just for you!
Mark your calendars! Fall classes will begin August 31.
