Orientation 2021 is LIVE!

We are excited to announce the launch of our online Orientation modules!

Student Orientation

For our incoming students, the online Orientation modules will provide you with information and resources to prepare you for your arrival on campus in the spring. You can access the online Orientation experience by visiting curry.edu/Orientation2021. We ask students to complete the module by January 15, 2021 so that you are aware of important information prior to selecting your fall courses.

Information about Advising & Registration:
All new students will have the opportunity to meet individually with an academic advisor virtually between December and January.  Within four (4) business days of completing the spring 2021 orientation module, in addition to the Math Assessment and Advising Survey on the New Student Checklist, incoming students will receive an email, in their Curry email account from an academic advisor.  This email will invite students to schedule an appointment to select spring courses, review their academic goals, and answer any questions about academics at Curry College.

Appointments are expected to begin the week of December 7, 2020 and will only be available to students who have completed items noted above.
