York Hall ArchwayTransfer Student Orientation 

Special Notice: We’re upgrading our Orientation Program for next year. The information found below only applies to the first-year class of 2021. Dates, times and fees subject to changes.

Welcome Class of 2021! We're excited to meet you at orientation. We're here to help you get to know your new home at Revelle College. You'll have Orientation Leaders to serve as your student guide as you learn about your academic, leadership, and involvement opportunities, and meet fellow students, staff, and faculty along the way. This is your chance for a smooth transition to Triton and Revelle Life

Below you'll find information about orientation sessions, a breakdown of costs, and a link to some frequently asked questions. A couple important notes:

  • Registration for orientation happens on the New Student Site. Register by the deadline indicated to avoid late fees.
  • Download the Revelle App to start exploring Revelle College. This is the tool you will use as a resource for orientation, so install the App before you attend orientation. Contact us if you have any concerns about the App.
  • Check in at the side of Galbraith Hall near the La Jolla Project (aka Stonehenge) at 8:00am. Check out at 6:30 pm.
