The Office of New Student Programs (NSP) coordinates orientation and outreach programs for first-year, transfer, and adult-learner students, as well as the family or friends who support them. Orientation experiences take place during the summer, fall, and spring seasons. NSP collaborates with a variety of campus and community programs to promote a successful transition to West Chester University by acclimating students and supporters with WCU’s academic and co-curricular services, resources for student success and achievement, and opportunities to connect with their peers, professors, and colleagues. 

In addition to virtual and in-person orientation experiences, new student outreach efforts include social media engagement, NSP website, email campaigns, and an extensive Welcome Week program. New students and supporters are encouraged to contact the NSP office if they have concerns as they transition to university life as a golden ram. For more information, please see our website.
