Hoggie Days (Presidential or regular session) is mandatory for first-time in college freshmen and new undergraduate students who have zero or less than 12 transferrable college credits. These students will not be able to register for classes without first attending a Hoggie Days session. After successful online registration, a confirmation receipt will be sent via e-mail to the address listed in Blue and Gold. Please check your e-mail frequently as this will be our primary means of communication.

Students who are unable to attend the Presidential Hoggie Days session on June 8-9 OR who are admitted for Summer 2017 should register to attend one of the other Hoggie Days sessions listed below.

Admitted for Summer 2017

Summer Session: May 22

The May 30 Hoggie Days session is designated for freshmen who are admitted for Summer 2014.

Admitted for Fall 2017

Two-Day Fall Sessions: June 8-9, June 19-20 , June 22-23, June 26-27, June 29-30, July 17-18, and August 3-4

Students registering for a two-day Hoggie Days session are required to attend both days, and overnight accommodations in one of our residence halls will be provided for students who attend a two-day session. Our student orientation leaders plan additional evening activities for students who stay on campus, and it is an extended opportunity for students to hang out with new friends. Students are encouraged to say the night on campus, but it is not required. Family members and other guests of the student should make arrangements at one of the hotels near campus as on-campus overnight accommodations are for students only. For a list of hotels in the area, please click here.

One-Day Fall Session: August 18

One-day sessions are typically 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. On-campus accommodations are not available for students attending a one-day session. Students and their guests/families can make arrangements at one of the hotels near campus if they need to stay the night before the session. One-day sessions cover the same important information provided at two-day sessions and are only different in terms of the overnight on-campus experience.
