Frequently Asked Questions

What if the session I want to sign up for is full?

It is important to reserve your space in an orientation session as soon as possible. Even if it is not your first choice, you can make adjustments later on. We suggest checking the status of each session weekly (and even daily leading up to the session) to see if the session you want to attend has opened up. People change their travel plans all the time!

Contact First-Year Experience by phone 607-274-1908 or by email at fye@ithaca.edu if you are having trouble finding a session to sign up for. We will work with you to make appropriate arrangements.

We close the system five days prior to a session in order to make appropriate arrangements. If you need to update or change your session within these five days, please contact our office immediately.
