Orientation Dates

Once you've completed the steps on the newly admitted students checklist, you'll be invited by your program via email to participate in a new student orientation virtual session. Orientation sessions will be hosted either at an on-campus location or synchronously through Zoom.

Please check your inbox (and spam folders) for the orientation invitation which will be sent to the email address supplied on your admissions application. Click the registration link inside the email to register. Note that unsubscribing from our emails means you will not receive the invitation or any other important information. For more information, email lps@sas.upenn.edu or call (215) 898-7326.

Fall 2023 new student orientation dates will be posted in the summer.
