​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to Jacksonville University!

New Student Orientation is one of the best ways to acclimate yourself to life here at JU, become familiar with the campus and to learn about the student experience! At Orientation, you will learn about the academic environment, support services, college facilities, student policies and what it means to be a JU Dolphin!

You will also be provided opportunities to connect with amazing student leaders, staff and faculty members. We will be sure to leave you equipped and excited to start your first semester here at JU!

All incoming students are required to attend New Student Orientation and space is limited. Orientation will be offered on campus in July and each session is three full days (which includes two overnight stays). Jacksonville University also has an International Student Orientation which is held in August.

Family members and guests are encouraged to attend the Parent and Family Orientation, which begins on day 2 of each summer session. This program will educate your family about JU resources and how to best support you in your exciting transition to college.
