Complete the steps below so you can be fully prepared for the overnight orientation session. Please note: All reservations are made under the student's name and student ID Banner number.
Step 1: Getting Started
Please note: All reservations are made under the student’s name and student ID Banner number. Prior to registering it is very important to check your dates! Many students register for orientation without considering important dates like graduation rehearsals and vacations.
All newly admitted freshmen pay a required non-refundable $150 New Student Orientation fee that also serves as your enrollment deposit. This fee holds your spot in the class of 2023 at UNCP. Freshmen admitted for the summer/fall 2019 semester(s) should register and pay their New Student Orientation fee by May 1, 2019. Students admitted after May 1, 2019 should register and pay their New Student Orientation fee within two weeks of acceptance.
Web reservations are the most expedient way to make your reservation. Online reservations are processed immediately and you will receive an email confirmation at the time you make the reservation. Your required non-refundable $150 New Student Orientation fee can be paid once you register for your orientation session by using your MasterCard or VISA. Once this fee is paid you have declared your intent to attend UNC Pembroke. If you are unable to pay the required non-refundable $150 New Student Orientation fee at the time of your reservation, there is an option to defer your payment to your fall tuition bill on the payment page for orientation. Reservations for family members are made at the same time as the student.
The university embraces the on-campus residential philosophy by requiring first-year freshmen to reside on campus for their initial academic year. The university understands there are some extenuating situations that may prevent a freshman from residing on campus. To review the criteria relative to a waiver request from this requirement, visit uncp.edu/resources/forms.
