TCNJ-campusWelcome to The College of New Jersey! We are thrilled that you’ve chosen to join the TCNJ community to earn your undergraduate degree and look forward to having you on campus for Orientation.

About The Day

Orientation is a one-day event set up so you can learn about all the different resources available to you as a TCNJ student, meet fellow classmates, attend a presentation by your academic department and finalize most, if not all, of your schedule. Please plan to be on campus for the entire day.

  • Your one-day orientation program will take place July 6-9, and students will be assigned a date based on their academic major. An RSVP email with your date will be sent in early June.
  • General Agenda (as of June 29, 2015) – Please note that the schedule for each student varies based on their academic major. Your personalized agenda will be provided to you at check-in.
