Congratulations on your admission to American University and welcome to the Eagle Family!
Your AU journey starts with Orientation. Throughout the summer, we will
help you get connected with other students at AU, learn about the resources and feel ready and excited to start your first semester.
Check your American University email account for updates from us about our on-line and on-demand orientation sessions before you arrive. When you arrive for move-in, you'll be greeted with a full schedule of in-person orientation activities and Eagle traditions.
