Student Orientation

Student orientation is intended to acclimate our newest students to the EVMS campus. Following is a brief overview of what our new students can expect during orientation. For detailed information, please log on to myPortal for information specific to your EVMS program.

New student orientation is made up of two components: on-line orientation and on-campus orientation. On-line orientation must be completed prior to arriving to the on-campus orientation. On-line Orientation is located on myPortal.

Unless instructed otherwise, on-campus orientation is mandatory and an important first step in your education. Fall 2014, on-campus orientation is scheduled from August 8 until August 17, a detailed schedule of institutional and program specific events can be found on myPortal. New students have an opportunity to meet classmates, faculty and staff at special events including: President's Picnic, Community Impact Day, and Norfolk Tides Baseball Game. Students will also learn about being a member of the EVMS community. 

As always, EVMS faculty and staff are here to answer any questions you may have. It is our privilege to work with students like you, and we look forward to helping you embark on this journey. ‌Congratulations and welcome to the EVMS community.
