Freshman Orientation

Orientation is one of the most important parts of your transition to MCPHS and college life. From learning about your academic program to making new friends, you will get the full MCPHS experience—and gain the tools you need to succeed during your time at MCPHS.

And, because we also offer special programming for families during Orientation, everyone gets to participate.

Please register for Freshman Orientation through your applicant portal.


 Orientation Session 4* is only available to international students and students living outside New England, New York, and New Jersey.
