Summer Orientation


Summer Orientation is a very important step within your transition to Concordia. On your Orientation Day, you cross the threshold and truly become a Concordia University Wisconsin student, and we want to make sure you are prepared not only for your first year at Concordia, but for years to come. Orientation is a required experience for all Concordia students because of the important information you will receive. The Orientation experience will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Customize your class schedule with your academic advisor
  • Connect with faculty, staff, and current students
  • Learn valuable information about resources available to students
  • And so much more!

COVID-19 important update

Amidst all the unexpected changes that have accompanied COVID-19, our commitment to ensuring you have a meaningful, successful transition into the Concordia family has not. To maintain the health and safety of our students, their families, and our staff, we have transitioned our Summer Orientation experience to virtual delivery. We will no longer be hosting on campus Summer Orientation events. That doesn’t diminish the excitement we have for you to begin your journey at CUW. We are eager for the opportunity to welcome you and have developed an engaging experience to ensure you feel like a Falcon on your first day of class!
