Orientation is a vital part of your transition to college life, and to life as a Privateer.
You’ll come to campus for a day to meet other students, talk to college faculty and staff, and learn what support services we offer to help you succeed.
During the mandatory one-day program, you will also meet your advisor and receive your schedule for the fall semester. Maritime’s majors are highly structured, so we make your first schedule for you based on your placement test results, transfer credits and the degree curriculum. You will be able to make adjustments at orientation.
At orientation, you will also receive your Maritime ID card, which gives you access to buildings on campus, includes your meal plan, and proves that you are a Maritime student. If you lose your Maritime ID, there is a fee to replace it. Replacements are available in Baylis Hall.
The orientation fee will automatically be part of your fall bill. Your financial aid package cannot be used to cover orientation.
