For the safety of all in our community, our Summer Orientation experience will be delivered in a live virtual format – with sessions offered multiple times for incoming students and their families to choose times that work the best for you! You will still schedule classes, learn about getting involved on campus, have a returning student who will check in with you regularly, and more - all in June. We will also still offer sessions designed specifically for parents and family members. You will sign up for the sessions that work best for you in the Next Steps portal. Parents and family members, watch for Virtual Orientation emails to register for parent/family sessions.
Everything you need to get ready for your time at Capital can be found in your Next Steps Portal! You will need to complete each task! Log in to your Next Steps portal here: apply.capital.edu/status!
