Fall 2021 New Student Orientation

Full-Time Programs


New student orientation is designed to introduce incoming students to the programs, services, and resources needed to begin a successful graduate school experience. 

Pre-Arrival Orientation

Prior to the start of the term, you will receive an email from the Full-Time Programs Office with instructions to access the full-time pre-arrival orientation via your WaveNet Student Center To-Do List. The pre-arrival orientation will provide you with valuable information and instructions to help you prepare for your arrival on campus and become familiar with the many resources and opportunities that Pepperdine provides. You can complete the pre-arrival orientation at a time most convenient for you. For most students, it will take about 45 minutes to complete the full pre-arrival orientation.
