New Student Express Orientation

August 17, 2014

New Student Express, an abbreviated orientation program for transfer students age 21 or older (by August 1), will take place on Sunday afternoon, August 17, 2014. Returning students and Adult Studies students are not required to attend New Student Express. The program will begin at 12:15 p.m (CST), in the Ezell Center. You’ll eat lunch with fellow new students, faculty, staff and with student orientation leaders who will be resources for you during your first semester. During dessert, you’ll hear brief presentations about the essential information you’ll need to maximize your transition to life at Lipscomb. It's college orientation express style.

Campus tours will be available after lunch and the accompanying orientation session. If you haven’t already registered for spring classes you will meet with an academic advisor and select your class schedule. Representatives from the Business Office and the Financial Aid Office will be available to assist you. You can also order your textbooks and the Security Office will be open for you to have your ID made and to pick up your parking sticker. You can expect to complete New Student Express by or before 5 p.m. Classes begin the next day.

Payment of the $35 fee—which covers your lunch and session materials—is required when you complete the registration form. The fee is waived for participants in our Yellow Ribbon Program and other Veterans. Online registration will open on Monday, March 3, 2014 and close at noon on Wednesday, August 13. Students who haven’t registered and paid by that deadline will register onsite at noon on August 17 in the Ezell Center lobby on campus and may be subject to a $10 late processing fee.

You are welcome to bring your spouse or parents to New Student Express. While guests are not charged a registration fee, there is a $15 charge per guest meal ticket. Meal reservations must be made no later than five days before the event.
