Freshman Incept: New Student Orientation
Freshmen can pick from three different Incept programs. Each Incept program the same orientation information, but each has a different structure. Students who attend a One Day will have to schedule all placement exams before their Incept day. Freshmen are required to stay at Incept for the entire day and allowances cannot be made for students to leave early.
One Day Incept: This Incept is a full day of orientation activities designed specifically for freshmen. Only freshmen students and their guests will attend this orientation. Check-in for One Day Incept is 7–7:55 a.m. in the Student Recreation Center (101 Piedmont Avenue). One Day Incept will last until 5 p.m.
Overnight Incept: This option for freshmen has an overnight component added to the format of a One Day program, allowing you to get a more in-depth look at campus life. Additionally, you will take the Math and Chemistry placement exams during the morning of the first day. You will stay in Piedmont North along with many of your future classmates. Check-in for the Overnight Incept is from 9 a.m.–12:30 p.m. on the first day at Piedmont North (175 Piedmont Avenue). Overnight Incept will last until 4 p.m. of day two.
Freshmen/Transfer Combination: This is a full day of orientation activities designed for students who are unable to attend freshman-specific Incept. Combination Incept will accommodate both freshmen and transfer students and provide a basic orientation to the University. Students are strongly encouraged to attend a freshman or transfer specific Incept over the Combination option. Check-in for Combination Incept is 7–7:55 a.m. in the Student Recreation Center (101 Piedmont Avenue). The conference will last until 5 p.m.
Note: New freshmen students entering in the summer and spring semesters will only have the freshmen/transfer Combination Incept to choose from.
