Non-Traditional New Student Orientation Registration


Non Traditional Students

Welcome to West Chester University and the Office of New Student Programs!  We want you to be successful as a non-traditional student, therefore, we offer a half-day orientation program designed to help non-traditional students prepare for their academic career at WCU.

A non-traditional student is someone 24 or older who is attending college for the first time or returning after an extended absence. Unlike traditional students, non-traditional students ("non-trads" for short) often work full or part-time, are married or partnered, and care for children or elderly parents. Non-trads should take advantage of the many student support services that are available for them at WCU.

When:  Friday, August 14, 2015, 3:45-7:30 p.m.

How to register: Non-Traditional New Student Orientation Registration

What to expect:  At orientation, you will have your WCU ID picture taken, tour the campus, receive information about the many student support services offered at WCU, and meet other non-traditional students you can network with before the start of the fall semester.
