JAG 365 New Student Orientation 2020

We’re Waiting on You!


Welcome to JAG 365 New Student Orientation. We’re so excited that you have joined the Jaguar Nation! Orientation programs are designed to welcome new students, parents, and families to the Southern University community. We have carefully planned sessions to offer a range of perspectives on life at Southern University, in addition to providing you with resources and information that will be helpful to students, parents, and families during the first few months of the university experience.

Please note that JAG 365 New Student Orientation has been adjusted in response to the increase in Coronavirus cases. Unfortunately, you will not be physically present during the traditional individual presentations prepared by departments; however, you are required to be engaged via live stream to limit the spread of the virus. Students will all be able to view department presentations, videos, flyers, and safety announcements on the big screens that will be stationed in the Courtyard and Residence Hall Circle; however, you are unable to gather in crowds larger than 10. You can view live scream from any device upon your arrival to your residential hall. If you are a commuter student (non resident), you are welcome to visit the campus to receive your welcome packet on August 2 only! Students are still able to move into their assigned residence hall and check-in for New Student Orientation.

Parents/Guardians who have registered for New Student Orientation will receive their welcome packet and assist their student with move-in, but once the aforementioned task are completed, we highly encourage parents/guardians to depart campus and view New Student Orientation LIVE via YOUTUBE.

Though orientation is streamed live and some of you may reside on campus, you are expected to tune in daily and follow the schedule that has been provided! Critical areas (advising, admissions, financial aid etc) will be available to assist, but NOT while presentations are taking place. It is very important that you take full advantage of this new experience. Remember classes begin on August 12.

If you are considering 100% online instructional courses, be sure to contact Residence Life and Housing (reslife@subr.edu) concerning your rooming assignment and your ability or inability to cancel your room assignment. Note that the University College team will mail your welcome packet to you, but you MUST send your full name, Student ID # and address to fye@subr.edu.


There is a $150 registration fee for students and a $25 fee per parent. Fees paid are nonrefundable.
