Welcome, Our New Scarlet Knights to Rutgers!

The mission of Student Orientation and Transition Programs is to welcome, prepare, and engage new students in their transition to Rutgers University-New Brunswick.   You will have an opportunity to learn about tools and resources available to you as a Rutgers student, tips and strategies to best navigate the campus, and connect with other new students and student leaders. 

How to Register for Orientation 

You will be able to go to your MyRutgers Dashboard and select your Orientation date. Students will be able to select either Wednesday, January 11, 2023 or Thursday, January 12, 2023 for their in person orientation.


We want to ensure that everyone is able to fully participate in our Orientation experience.  If there are questions and/or concerns about the method(s) of delivering content, please do not hesitate to contact us at orientation@echo.rutgers.edu.
