New Student Orientation
Welcome to our campus! Your educational journey begins at our New Student Orientation. LIU Post’s orientation sessions are specially designed for freshman, transfers, adult students (adults 25 and over) and international students. These mandatory sessions are held in August and early September for students enrolling for the Fall semester, and in January for those enrolling for the Spring semester. There is a mandatory orientation fee for all students.
Orientation is a great introduction to life at LIU Post. You will learn about campus facilities, resources, clubs and activities, health services, public safety, and so much more! You also can meet with an academic counselor to register for classes, obtain a parking sticker, tour the campus, and meet current LIU Post students. Students who are admitted to LIU Post will receive orientation information in the mail or via e-mail. Pre-registration is required.

Freshman Orientation is designed for recent high school graduates who are just starting college or those students who have fewer than 24 college credits. In order to facilitate your transition into our University, all new students are required to attend one Freshman Orientation. The two-day session includes an overnight stay in our residence halls and plenty of opportunities to get to know your classmates and learn more about campus activities and services.
Transfer, Adult and Graduate Student Orientation
Transfer, Adult and Graduate Student Orientation is designed for students transferring to LIU Post with 24 credits or more from another accredited college or university, and for adult learners (25 years or older) pursuing bachelor’s degrees and for Graduate Students.
