How much does it cost?

The basic cost of your Orientation is covered by the New Student Curriculum fee. You’ll see this charge on your fall tuition and fees statement. If you are bringing your family or staying overnight, associated fees are listed below:

Guest Fees for Orientation:

  • 2-Day Family Orientation Guest Fee: $95 per family member (does not include lodging)
  • Students can bring up to two guests to their orientation program

Student Overnight Lodging Fee:

  • Chaffee Residence Hall (one night): $50 per student
  • For first-year students starting in the fall, we highly encourage you to stay overnight on campus for your orientation.

Note: Payments for overnight lodging and guest fees are only refundable by the first day of the orientation program.
