All incoming students will receive their university credentials by mail after they have placed their deposit with the institution.

Students should then use the provided credentials to access their personalized New Student Checklist, where you will be able to access important links pertaining to Orientation and other requirements to prepare for your Marywood career to begin!

Orientation Dates

Each College within the University will have its own Orientation program. Students are encouraged to attend the session that aligns with their major, but it is not required to do so. Students who are undeclared are invited to attend the session that aligns with the major they are most interested in!

Orientation will serve as an opportunity to meet faculty and staff, get to know future classmates in an assigned small group, receive your fall class schedule, ask questions, tour residence halls, take part in the Class of 2025 photo - and have fun!
