Summer Orientation 2021

It all starts with Orientation!

Orientation/Registration will be virtual for all new students (first year/first time and transfer). We're excited to meet with you virtually until we can come together this Fall!

As a result of the COVID-19 crisis and guidance from health officials, Alfred University will be holding all Summer 2021 Orientation/Registration sessions in an online format. Deposited students will automatically be registered for an orientation session (see details below). Online course registration will take place in early May (following our May 1st deposit deadline) and will be organized and delivered by our Pamela Lavin Bernstein Center for Advising Academic Success Coaches during virtual orientation sessions.

In order for us to get you registered for your Fall 2021 classes, there is one step we need you to take care of now.

Submit Financial Responsibility Form

We need to have a Financial Responsibility Form completed. This form is an electronic signature that accepts financial responsibility for the coursework you will receive at Alfred University.

Sign-in on BannerWeb using your Student ID (A00XXXXXX). Once signed in, go to the "Student Services" tab and select "Look Up Classes." Clicking this link will prompt the Financial Responsibility Form to pop up. Once that is complete, you'll be all set to register! Questions about the form or process? Contact our Student Accounts Office.

If you're like most new students, you're not sure what to expect. You're probably excited about the quality of the educational experience here, about campus and about the prospect of making friends for life. At the same time you're probably a little apprehensive about this leap into a whole new community and all the changes that brings.

Orientation Schedule

Orientation will help prepare you for everything Alfred University has to offer both in and out of the classroom. You'll get to know your classmates, professors and the staff and become more familiar with the University. You will receive your class schedule and other important information about all the necessary steps you need to take before arriving on campus in the Fall.

Be sure to check your Alfred University email account and this website on a regular basis for more information about our virtual Orientation sessions. The exact virtual Orientation session you attend will be determined by the college or school you will be enrolled in (see dates below). You will automatically be registered for one of our virtual sessions. There will be additional sessions offered later in the Summer as well. In the meantime – stay safe, stay well and get excited Saxons! Please note Alfred University students are required to attend one of our Orientation Sessions.

Parents & Families: You’re welcome to attend our virtual Orientation! This is a perfect opportunity to ask questions and gain important information.
