Welcome to Duke! We are thrilled that you will be joining the Duke community this fall. Duke is an incredible university with endless amounts of exciting opportunities both in and out of the classroom. That’s why we believe that orientation is more than a week. From the time you click “yes,” the Office of New Student and Family Programs (NSFP) will be in continuous communication with you and your family to make sure your transition to Duke is as smooth as possible.

The orientation process is divided into three phases: Summer Engagement, Experiential Orientation, and Beyond O-Week!
