New Student & Transition Programs

Welcome to MCPHS Orientation!

Congratulations on becoming a Cardinal here at MCPHS. We are excited to introduce you to our unique community and innovative campus as well as the city of Boston! Your transition to MCPHS and college life begins with MCPHS Orientation! Our Orientation program is an exciting two-part hybrid program including a one day in-person session and self-paced virtual modules called Connect.

In-Person Orientation

Your mandatory in-person Campus Orientation Day will have special programs for both you, the incoming student, and your family and guest members! Here you will have a chance to engage with other incoming Cardinals.

Connect Platform

The flexible and informative virtual sessions through the MCPHS Connect platform will launch in early July, and students will receive all necessary log-in credentials and information to their MCPHS email. Be sure to get into the habit of checking your MCPHS email account throughout the summer regularly in preparation for the year ahead. Please find additional information and dates for in-person Orientation for undergraduates, transfer students, families/guests, and graduate students below.
