Welcome Week 2020

Asbury University’s Welcome Week provides new students with the support and resources to successfully enter Asbury’s social, spiritual, and intellectual community. All new and transfer students enrolling full-time are expected to attend Welcome Week. Transfers with 30 credits or more begin Welcome Week on Thursday, August 13-16; all other new and transfer students with 29 credits or under begin Tuesday, August 11-16, 2020.

Before coming to campus, look over the checklist below to make sure you’re prepared to arrive.

  1. Visit the Deposited Students website and complete the checklist.
  2. Visit the Housing Page for your Housing Preference Form and more information on moving to Asbury.
  3. There is a brief Family and Friends Orientation on August 11 and 12. More information to come soon.
  4. During Welcome Week all new students will take the Language Proficiency Exam. For more information on how to select which exam, or why, read about the Language Placement Exam.
  5. Dates for incoming freshmen (those with 29 or fewer credit hours) are Tuesday, August 11 through Sunday, August 16. Incoming transfer students (those with 30 or more transferrable post-high school credit hours) are to arrive Thursday, August 13. View last year’s schedule for an example of what to anticipate in Fall 2020 Welcome Week. The tentative 2020 schedule will be posted mid-April. Finalized schedules will be available at Welcome Week registration.
  6. Prior to Welcome Week students have the option to attending Archways, a pre-orientation outdoor adventure leadership program.
  7. If you are a new student and participating in Asbury’s Soccer or Volleyball program, you will arrive on Tuesday, August 4. You will receive some pre-orientation programming, but will still participate in a majority of the Welcome Week schedule beginning on Tuesday, August 11. If you have any questions about this process, contact your athletic coach.

Our faculty, staff, and students are so excited to welcome you! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting you soon in person!
