New Student Orientation


Important Orientation Reminders:

  • Students, please select a session where both days fit into your schedule.  You need to be present for the full day and a half program in order to complete required assessments to determine course placements for the Fall 2015 semester!
  • Please note that the registration process has multiple steps.  After selecting an application and filling out information, the student must go back to the myWestfield home screen and follow the instructions to to select their dates (session) of choice.
  • The fees associated with the applications are for the parent program only.  There is no fee for students to attend the program.
  • Students are automatically placed into housing for orientation.  Students will be housed based on their group assignment and major.  The "room selection" portion of the registration process is simply reserving a space for the program.  The numbers listed under the room catagory are for count purposes only and are not actual rooms in the building.  Roommates are randomly assigned for the one night orientation program.
  • When filling out the application please note that the student should be selecting the application that corresponds with parent guests - the application choices are for the PARENT options only.  All students will stay on campus during the orientation program.
  • Confirmation emails are sent throughout the registration process - students, please check your @westfield.ma.edu email for all confirmation information and correspondence.

Orientation registration is now open!  Please click on the First Year Orientation/First Year Registration pages for step by step instructions on how to register for a session.  Transfer students, you do not need to sign up for one of these programs, you will receive information in the mail regarding your advising sessions.
