Welcome to Saint Anselm College! New Student Orientation is a two-part program:
- Orientation Part I: Students and Parents: Planning Your Journey
- Orientation Part II: Beginning Your Journey
Orientation Part I is a half day on-campus program designed to familiarize students and their families with the first year at Saint Anselm College and thereafter. Students and families will rotate through separate sessions that are relevant to their distinct experiences, questions, and concerns. Students will also be advised by faculty members and will register for their courses on one of these days. Students who are unable to attend will be able to register on-line at a later date.
There are three dates for Orientation Part I that students and parents can choose among:
- Tuesday, June 16
- Wednesday, June 17
- Thursday, June 18
Because we know that distance, work, or other obligations may make it impossible for you to attend, attendance is not mandatory. However, we do urge you to attend if you can. Please make your selection by June 5 for your preferred Orientation Part I session by visiting the MyAnselm Admitted Student Portal.
Orientation Part II begins with Move In Day on Thursday, August 27, and continues through Saturday, August 29. During this three-day program you will get to know your classmates and learn more about campus life with Saint Anselm students as your guides.
Additional Resources for Move In Day:
- MyAnselm (student schedules and book list)
- Financial Aid and Billing
- Information about Parking and Vehicle Registration
- Buying Your Books
- Laptops and Computers
- Student Employment
Returning residents will be welcome back to campus on Sunday, August 30 at 9 a.m. We look forward to having you back on campus! Please start making arrangements for Move-In Day 2015.
Each year, the Office of Residential Life (RLE) gives permission for a small number of students to move in early. These students include our preseason athletes and student staff members who work to prepare the halls for opening and welcome new students. All students granted permission to return to campus early are connected to campus offices and initiatives vital to the work of the College in August. Each student arriving early will receive their arrival dates from the office they are connected with.
In the best interest of the College and all students, it is important for us to consistently honor our early arrival policy and practice. The College sets a move-in date with deliberation; it is not possible for us to accommodate students who are not connected to campus initiatives and practices outlined above, and permission will not be granted to return earlier.
