Dear Campus Community, 

As many of you know Highlander Orientation hosts more than 7,000 new students and their family members each July through September. It’s an opportunity to welcome our new class to the campus community as they prepare for their academic careers at UC Riverside. This year, with the uncertainty of COVID-19, we have made the decision to move to a remote orientation program for our incoming first-year and transfer students. Today’s decision will allow us to work with our academic partners and campus departments to provide the most robust and informative program as possible. We will be working closely with all of our campus partners in the upcoming weeks to accommodate for the online program.

If you have any questions, please visit our website at https://orientation.ucr.edu or send us an email at orientation@ucr.edu. We will continue to share programmatic updates. We look forward to welcoming our new class of Highlanders.

Thank you all for your support and flexibility during this time. Go Highlanders!
