Summer Orientation

Get United!

We are happy you have decided to join the Illinois Wesleyan University community, and we are gearing up to welcome you and your family to what will be a great summer orientation program! 

To register for summer orientation, you will need access to your IWU email account.  Within three to five business days of receipt of your deposit after March 1, you will receive your welcome email from the Offices of Orientation Services and Academic Advising along with a technology letter from Information Technology Services which will include how to activate your email. Once you have your email established you can register for summer orientation here

Note:  Incoming transfer students still need to fill out the summer registration information.

Goals of Summer Orientation

Summer Orientation is an important first step in becoming a Titan. It is important to remember that every college and university approaches orientation differently. At IWU, orientation happens in two ways - Summer Orientation (June sessions) and Turning Titan Week. The goals of each program differ slightly, so below you can see what we hope you accomplish during Summer Orientation:

Parents and family members, we also want you to learn what it means to support a Titan! At IWU, we offer a separate, family orientation program that runs concurrent with the student program. The information sessions we offer provide the opportunity to meet and hear from a number of our campus administrators, faculty and staff members. The majority of students are accompanied at Summer Orientation by a parent or adult family member.

 Summer Orientation Dates are as follows: June 12, June 15, June 19, and June 22.
