Tennessee Wesleyan University welcomes you to New Student Orientation. During orientation, new students will meet many members of the university community, learn what it means to be a Bulldog, finalize your financial aid and meet with a faculty advisor to set up your semester schedule. 


January 2021 Orientation will be held online.

Because we are still in a pandemic and your health and safety is our top priority!


What to expect at an online orientation.

1. You will still meet other new Bulldogs. You'll meet in small groups of 8-10 students and go through activities to learn more about each other and TWU!

2. Connect with current Bulldogs. Meet your Orientation Leaders who will also serve as Peer Mentors once you arrive in the fall. 

3. Meet with financial aid. You will have a specific time scheduled to meet with someone from Student Financial Services. Here, you can discuss your award letters, pay your enrollment deposit and set up a payment plan. 

4. Register for your first TWU classes! Advising sessions will be individual video conference calls with your TWU advisor. You'll talk through Wesleyan Essentials and your major courses and actually register for fall classes!
