New Student Orientation

The Orientation Committee welcomes you to our campus community. We are delighted that you have chosen to attend Rutgers University-Camden. The New Student Orientation program is a two day experience. Your orientation experiences will help you not only learn about the many services and programs available to you as a Rutgers University-Camden student, but how these offerings can best guide your academic career. You will also have an opportunity to interact with student leaders and our faculty and staff.

The Rutgers University-Camden New Student Orientation Program is a dynamic and interactive set of sessions that provide essential information, introduces concepts of college culture, language, and expectations, and assists students in navigating buildings, services and resources available at Rutgers University-Camden. These programs include: 

  • Advising & Registration Program takes place after a student has accepted to the University and has completed all required placement tests. During this program students will meet with an advisor, choose courses, and register for classes. Students will be notified via email of their assigned date (assignments may vary based on special programs).
  • Raptor Welcome, the interactive mandatory on-campus orientation program for all new students that takes place in August. The program gives students a chance to meet their fellow Rutgers University-Camden Raptors and participate in a variety of activities to prepare them for their college experience.
  • Everfi Online Course, the mandatory comprehensive prevention program for new students.  Everfi consist of three online courses, AlchoholEdu, Transit, and Haven which will educate students on alcohol abuse prevention, sexual assault prevention, and financial literacy.  Students will also be required to complete the university online Academic Integrity Tutorial through Sakai.
