Beginning college is a key life transition. Whether you move away from home or live close enough to continue living with family, you will assume greater responsibility, meet a variety of diverse people, and adjust to the academic demands of college life. Our new student orientation, IMPACT, is designed to cater to your every need while beginning college at TROY. You will begin the process of transitioning to your new college environment. At IMPACT you will meet new people, learn how to get involved on campus, and register for fall classes: three essential elements which will foster a successful transition to the TROY family.
 
This major life transition is also important for parents and/or guardians of the student. Therefore, we offer parent sessions concurrently with the student sessions for both freshmen and transfers.

In our continued priority of providing the highest level of safety and security to our students we have developed a plan for our 2021 IMPACT New Student Orientation Program. After much careful consideration, this summer we will host  one-day on campus IMPACT orientation sessions for both freshmen and transfer students. We will offer one virtual IMPACT session hosted solely online for those with possible exposure or travel restrictions.

We look forward to presenting new student information in the most engaging, informative, and most importantly, safest way as possible. We are so excited to be able to serve you as you begin your journey as a TROY Trojan, and are here to assist in any way possible.

All parents and/or guardians of incoming students, both freshman and transfer, are invited to attend Parents Orientation free of charge. Parents are provided with information on student services, expenses, and how to assist your student in transitioning to college. You also have the opportunity to meet with selected faculty members and meet current TROY students!

Due to the ever-changing situation with Covid-19 we request only 2 parents/guardians per each enrolling student attend the IMPACT in-person sessions. If you select to attend the virtual IMPACT session, you will receive the event link the week of your event.

Registration for 2021 sessions will open Monday, March 15, 2021.

The cost for both in-person and virtual sessions will be $50. This fee must be paid online prior to your session in order to confirm your session registration.
