Orientation registration for Fall 2022 is now open! Please review the instructions below before beginning your registration.

To make changes to your Orientation registration or to add a family member or guest, you may log back into your Orientation account up to one week prior to your scheduled session.

If you have questions or need assistance, email us at newrams@vcu.edu and we will work to resolve your concerns.

Registering for Orientation

Before registering, you must review the items on the accepted student checklists and complete them in the order in which they are listed. Notice that there are several steps to complete before you can register online to gain access to the Orientation modules.

Follow these steps to complete your registration:

  1. Log in to the Orientation registration page with your VCU eID and password. For assistance with setting up your eID or password, visit myeid.vcu.edu or contact the IT Support Center. If you recently paid your tuition deposit and the site won’t allow you to register, try again after two to three business days.

  2. You will first see your VCU task list. This task list will update throughout the process with items that need to be completed before beginning classes at VCU.

  3. Select "Complete my Orientation reservation" to begin your registration.

  4. Review your information and complete the questionnaire. The Orientation registration system pulls your data directly from your student account based on your VCU application. Please make sure the information is accurate and fill in any requested information carefully. The questionnaire is your opportunity to let us know your military status (including benefits), your technology access and if you require any special accommodations for Orientation.

  5. Add contact information for a family member or supporter. If you would like a family member or supporter to receive updates from VCU throughout the academic year, please add their information here. NOTE: This does not add a guest to your Orientation reservation; that is done during a later step.

  6. Choose your date. You will choose a date and time for your Orientation session. 

  7. Add a guest. If you have a family member or guest who would like to attend Orientation with you, add their information here. There is a non-refundable fee for guests attending the in-person program (first-year guest fee is $50 per person; transfer guest fee is $30 per person). All major credit and debit cards are accepted through a secure billing site. For more information, see the family member or guest page. If you are unsure whether you want to add a family member at this time, you can log back in and add them later.

  8. Submit your reservation. Your reservation is not complete until you have clicked SUBMIT at the bottom of the page. If you are adding a guest to an in-person session, you must also pay the guest fee with a debit or credit card in order to reserve their space. Successful registration is followed by a confirmation email to both the student and any registered guests (to the emails provided).
