Exemption Request Form
All domestic freshman students are required to attend Summer Orientation. However, a small number of spots have been reserved during Fall Orientation for domestic freshman students to attend. Students may apply for an exemption from Summer Orientation to attend Fall Orientation (September 16-17). Exemptions are rare and only approved for students with extreme financial constraints.
Students who are granted an exemption will be automatically registered for Fall Orientation and notified via email. Please allow at least 5 business days for exemption requests to be processed.
Upon successful completion of the Dragon Summer Program, participants will be automatically registered for Fall Orientation (September 16-17). Dragon Summer students do not need to pre-register or apply for an exemption.
Pre-registration for Fall Orientation will close on Tuesday, Sept. 9. Sessions fill up quickly, so pre-register as soon as possible.
