New Student Orientation 2013
Eagle Summit, American University's new student orientation for first-year students, is designed to welcome new students and their families to American University. During the Summit, you will learn about academics and campus life at American University, while meeting other new students as well as current AU students who will help you acclimate to the university. In addition to meeting with your advisor and finalizing your course schedule you will learn your way around campus, spend a night in a residence hall, take necessary placement exams, receive your AU ID Card and much, much more. By the time you leave the Summit, you will be well on your way to success!
New Student Programs hosts several orientation programs throughout the summer for students entering American University in the fall semester. Starting in late March, you (the student) will receive detailed information about Eagle Summit in the mail, via USPS, after you submit your Enrollment Agreement and tuition deposit.
