The following information pertains to new students at the Lawrenceville campus.


 Orientation and Placement Testing

You will not need to come to campus in advance for your placement testing or orientation unless you want to.  We understand that coming to campus during the summer can be costly and difficult.

Students who do not attend orientation will complete an online orientation program during the summer and can participate in other orientation activities during move-in weekend.

Visit www.rider.edu/orientation for more details.

If you are enrolled in a program that has an early move-in time, please follow the instructions given to you by that program (i.e. Milestone Bridge to Success week, LEAD Camp, MSLI).

Freshman move-in day is Sunday, September 6, 2020
If you'd like to make arrangements to move into your residence hall earlier on one of the following dates, please fill out the early move-in request form. (Note: The early move-in request form will be available starting in August 2020.)
