Students attending this program will be required to stay overnight and this fee is part of your orientation fee that is placed on your student bill at the time of course registration. You will receive information regarding this Pre-Orientation program from the Office of Undergraduate Studies and Academic Partnerships via your TWU email account.

Parents and guests, your portion of the program will not begin until day one of orientation.

Within two weeks of registering for orientation a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the student's e-mail TWU account. This e-mail will contain a specific check-in time and location.
