What’s Next?

  • The first message in mid-June will come from the Information Technology Services staff and will include the credentials for your Wesleyan email account and WesPortal, your personalized online hub containing important university, academic, and account information.
  • Be sure to check your Wesleyan account regularly or set up email forwarding to your primary email address so you do not miss important messages.
  • As of July 3, 2024, information will ONLY be sent to your Wesleyan email address.

This "online orientation" will be your personal guide to starting college, available anytime and from anywhere, so you can get to know Wesleyan on your own terms. It's packed with interactive content like videos and quizzes to make learning about campus fun and engaging. With our online orientation modules, you'll be stepping onto campus with confidence, fully prepared to make the most of your college experience.
