New Student Orientation

Elevate your Experience at the Daytona Beach campus


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.

You'll be able 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 Student Engagement Office which is housed in the Mori Hosseini Student Union. The program is administered by various campus partners such as Academic Colleges, University Departments, Parent and Family Programs, and Student Affairs Divisions.


Student Check-In

The program begins 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.


Your Journey begins here

New Student Orientation begins 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.

Dates and other information on these sessions are below. We look forward to meeting you here in Daytona soon!
