Freshmen registration and orientation dates are held prior to the start of the Fall Semester. All first-time freshmen must attend one of these sessions and must pay the Freshman Fee ($100) prior to participating. During Freshmen registration sessions, students will receive their Fall class schedule and will have the opportunity to meet with an Academic Advisor if schedule adjustments are necessary.
Freshmen Orientation includes a variety of programs and events that will help you make Cumberland University your new home away from home. It's a great opportunity to meet students, staff, and faculty. You will learn about the resources that Cumberland University provides. In addition, you will be introduced to Peer Mentors, students who will assist you with the transition to higher education. The Office of Student Success & Retention provides Peer Mentors, and they will help incoming freshmen successfully navigate their first year at Cumberland University.
