New Student Orientation and Registration

Congratulations on your acceptance to Brooklyn College! We are eager to welcome you as the newest edition to the Bulldog community. To assist you as you begin this important phase in your life, you will be required to attend one summer orientation session prior to classes starting in the fall. Orientation is a great way to meet other members of the Class of 2019, learn about college policies and procedures, receive information about academic and campus resources, and most importantly meet with an adviser and register for classes.

Orientation will take place over two days. Day 1 is scheduled for 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. During Day 1 you will be given your assigned advising appointment time. Day 2 is scheduled for 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. During Day 2, you will meet with an adviser, register for classes, and receive your Brooklyn College ID card. Both days are important. Therefore, plan your time accordingly.
