Session Dates

 

Incoming UCR students participate in a group activity led by Highlander Orientation leaders.

 

Highlander Orientation will be held in a hybrid format for summer 2022.

  • Highlander Orientation is a mandatory program that consists of a two-day on-campus orientation session followed by a half-day virtual academic advising and course registration appointment.

  • Students are required to stay on campus overnight in our campus residential halls during our two-day on-campus sessions.

  • The virtual half-day academic advising appointments will be conducted completely online via Zoom. Students are not required to come to campus during these appointments.

  • The sessions are separated according to colleges and majors. Plan for both a two-day session and a half-day appointment that corresponds accordingly.

  • Attending the mandatory Highlander Orientation program is a provision of UC Riverside admission. Failure to attend both an in-person session and a virtual advising appointment will result in the revoking of a student's admission to the University.

  • An optional two-day Family Orientation program will take place during each of the in-person Orientation sessions (dates listed below).

  • The one-day in-person Spanish Language Family Orientation program will take place only on Friday, July 15, 2022.
