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.
  • Once you have access to WesPortal, you may begin your “Get Ready for Wes Online Orientation”. This 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. You'll find everything you need to know, from the ins and outs of campus life to where to find support when you need it, helping you feel ready and excited for your college adventure. With Get Ready for Wes Online Orientation, you'll be stepping onto campus with confidence, fully prepared to make the most of your college experience.
  • 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 6, 2023, information will ONLY be sent to your Wesleyan email address (check with Paul Turrene).
  • If you will not have internet access during the summer, please notify the Orientation Staff in the Office of Student Involvement, at (please note the office will not be staffed until June).
