New Student Orientation Impact

New Student Orientation

Discover, Connect, Take Flight

As a new Fairmont State University student, you are required to attend New Student Orientation. We offer on-campus orientations, as well as virtual orientations for those seeking a virtual option. 

New Student Orientation is where you will officially become a student at Fairmont State University. This program will introduce you to our campus, services, programs, and academics. Additionally, New Student Orientation is where you will get your Spring or Fall class schedule.


If I attend an on campus orientation event, can my family come?

Yes! We encourage students to bring their supporters to Welcome Wednesdays, and Saturday Orientations
