New Student Transitions & Orientation



Congratulations on your decision to attend Juniata College! We know that you and your family have many questions and concerns as you begin thinking about all of the tasks you need to accomplish before you arrive on campus.

Steps to Take Before Coming to Juniata

Juniata is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and how it might impact any transition moment for our incoming students for Fall 2020. We will communicate directly with our students as any changes are made - please check your Juniata email regularly for these and other updates. We will also ensure any changes made are reflected on this webpage. If you have any questions about potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic or any other matter, do not hesitate to reach out to We're here to help you in your eagle transition!

In order to ensure flexibility and participation for all our incoming Juniatians, our Summer Orientation programs will be held virtually and all Inbound retreats will be offered in August.
