We continue to welcome a record-breaking number of students from around the world, all bringing a wide variety of academic, cultural, personal and social interests. It's important that you have a clear picture of what's needed to begin your Lipscomb experience. Entering an academic community is important and can be stressful, but don't worry. We're here to help. The orientation team is dedicated to serving you and easing this exciting transition. We look forward to meeting you on campus.

Once you’ve paid your enrollment fee and housing fee you will:

  • Receive instructions about picking a dorm and roommate
  • Register for orientation, called ADVANCE, when it opens at the beginning of November.  Only students who have paid the enrollment fee may register for ADVANCE.
  • If you are a transfer student, academic advising will take place throughout the spring and summer.
