Following guidelines issued by the State System of Higher Education, we are currently working to deliver a virtual summer orientation experience and will communicate with students by email as details are finalized.

Welcome to The Office of New Student Programs at West Chester University!  New Student Programs offers orientation programming for new first-year, transfer and adult learner students as well as programs throughout the year to help new students with their transition to WCU.  We also offer programs designed specifically for new students' family members, guardians and guests so they can learn more about WCU and how to support their student throughout their academic career.  Choose from the tabs above for more information about our office and the different orientation programs we offer, or explore the information below to learn more about WCU and the surrounding community.
