Welcome, Future Novos!

You are about to embark on an exhilarating collegiate experience. New College—your new home—awaits your brilliance this spring. We know these past few months have been unusual but we are so glad that your journey has brought you to New College. 

Registration for Orientation is a two-step process. You will first need to register using one form. After registering for orientation, you will need to use the second link to pay your orientation fee. 

Step 1: Register for Orientation

Step 2: Pay Your Orientation Fee

Orientation will be a hybrid program with a mix of online asynchronous and synchronous sessions, as well as in-person sessions that will abide by health and safety protocols. If you plan on completing your semester fully remotely, please email orientation@ncf.edu to let us know!

Required for Move-In: Covid-19 Testing

You must receive a PCR COVID-19 test in the 7-day period before your arrival to campus, and send the results to wellness@ncf.edu before you arrive. 

For example, if you are moving into the residence halls on 1/25, test on 1/18 to stay within the 7-day period.

TEST: 1/18

MOVE-IN: 1/25

If you are living off-campus, test on 1/19 to stay within the 7-day period.
TEST: 1/19

If you plan to live off-campus and take all of your classes remotely, just remember the CWC needs to receive everyone’s negative test before they can come to campus. If you test positive for COVID-19, you will need to self-quarantine for at least 14 days. Also: If you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, or if you have recently been in a country with CDC COVID-19 US entry travel restrictions you should self-quarantine for 14 days.

If you have trouble getting access to a test, or have any other questions at all, please contact the Counseling and Wellness Center by emailing wellness@ncf.edu. Let’s all work together to have a great semester!
