Welcome, New Students & Families

We want you to have a smooth and successful transition to Embry-Riddle! New Student Orientation is meant to provide you with a chance to connect with other students and to learn about opportunities and services both in and out of the classroom, so you can make a strong start on your journey here at the Daytona Beach Campus.

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is a required program for all new students (freshman, transfer and graduate students). It is coordinated by the Office of New Student Orientation, which is housed in the Student Engagement and Student Union department. The programming administered during New Student Orientation is produced by various campus partners, such as the academic colleges and departments, Admissions, Parent & Family Programs, and all other divisions within Student Affairs.

  • Your on-campus journey begins here with ERAU Check-in, where students officially check in to the university, receive their residence hall room keys and get information about all that’s happening during Orientation.
  • During this time, students will learn about the community and the resources available, finalize their class schedule, meet with their academic advisor, and get a chance to meet both new and continuing students at Embry-Riddle.

We run New Student Orientation at the start of each semester, so whenever you begin at Embry-Riddle, we will be glad to welcome you and help you start off with what you need. We look forward to meeting you here in Daytona Beach soon!
