New Student Orientation

Orientation dates for fall semester students are August 10-15, 2020. Moody is continuing to monitor local, state, and national guidelines for health and safety. As we approach Orientation, we will send you any necessary updates to our schedule or procedures based on recommendations for your wellbeing. In the meantime, please reference our COVID-19 FAQ page for helpful information.

For Orientation and Move-In details, please refer to the "Chicago Orientation & Move-In Dates" section located under "Orientation Updates" found on this page.

Orientation is required for graduation for any undergraduate student that is coming to the Chicago campus for the first time. We require students to clear their schedules for the entirety of Orientation in order to complete the requirements necessary to pass Orientation.

Any exceptions must be approved by the Associate Dean of Students, Rachel Puente. If you wish to discuss any special circumstances regarding your attendance at Orientation, please contact her at or (312) 329-4106.

Married Students: If you have made arrangements for on-campus housing, you may have a different move-in date that you have negotiated with the Assistant Dean of Housing. You will still need to be available on check-in day to receive your new student packet and to meet with departments.
