On behalf of the Orientation staff and the entire university, we welcome you to St. Edward’s University. We are pleased you will join us this spring and are confident you will make a significant contribution to our campus community. Our international academic community will challenge and inspire you to fulfill your potential — and empower you to make a difference in your world.

The information on this website will help you understand the steps you must take to enroll for courses and prepare to arrive on campus. You’ll learn more about Orientation options for freshmen, transfer and international students, special student services, on-campus housing and the optional Orientation for parents, family and friends.

Events planned during Orientation provide opportunities to meet other new students as well as St. Edward’s University faculty, staff, student leaders and administrators. In addition, Orientation includes optional academic placement testing so you may choose courses appropriate to your proficiencies.
