Welcome to Olivet
You’re almost here! There are just a few steps left to complete before you’re ready to become an official member of the Olivet Nazarene University family. Once you’ve been admitted and secured your spot with your enrollment deposit, you can follow the steps below to complete your Olivet Orientation process.
See you soon!
Our favorite part of the Olivet Orientation process is the in-person Orientation event. We’re so excited to have you on campus this summer! Orientations will take place June 9th and 10th and June 16th and 17th.
Not able to join us in-person this summer? No worries! We will have a remote Orientation option available. You can watch the virtual Orientation this summer, then join us for a brief in-person event when you arrive on campus in August.
Whether you attend Orientation in-person or online, you will hear more about the Olivet story, financial aid, academic success, music, athletics, and how to thrive at Olivet!
Finding a Roommate
You still have plenty of time to find a roommate, and we are here to help! Fill out the Roommate Questionnaire and we will match you with a group of other students who share your interests. Join us for virtual meet-ups throughout May to meet potential roomies! Your admissions counselor will contact you with specific details.
At Orientation, you will have the chance to meet a roommate and explore your dorm room options. Housing sign-ups will take place after Orientation. Your time slot for sign-ups is based on the date of your enrollment deposit.
Commuter students will complete their commuter confirmation forms before attending Orientation.
One of the most important parts of the Orientation process is finalizing your financial aid. It may seem like a lot to do between now and the start of fall semester, but we are with you every step of the way!
REMINDER: Your first payment is due August 1!
Visit our “Easy as 1, 2, 3” Financial Aid page for step-by-step instructions and how-to videos for finalizing your financial aid.
