Essential Information

Orientation Waitlist
(Summer Freshman Sessions Only)

If your desired session is full, you will have the option to request to be added to our waitlist. You must register for an open Orientation session in order to be added to our waitlist. If all June sessions are full, you must be signed up for the August session. We will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that if we are unable to reach you, we will move on to the next person on the waitlist as vacancies often occur at the last minute.

If you are registered for August and a June session becomes open, you will be charged the additional June fees ($20 student, $10 per family member).

Please email us if you change your mind and would like to be taken off the waitlist.

Please be patient. Due to the volume of calls, Transition Programs will contact
YOU if a spot has opened up.

How to be Added to the Waitlist

If you haven't registered for Orientation yet:

When you access your Orientation registration through your Teal Ticket on MySeaport, you will see the option to be added to the waitlist on the bottom of the registration page. Use the drop down box to make your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd session choices. You will be asked to give two phone numbers that you can best be reached at between the hours of 8am-5pm. Please note that if we are unable to reach you, we will move on to the next person on the waitlist as vacancies often occur at the last minute.

If you have already registered for Orientation:

If you have already registered for Orientation and you want to move into a session that is currently full, please call the Transition Programs Office at 910.962.3089 to be added to the waitlist. You will be asked to give two phone numbers that you can best be reached at between the hours of 8am-5pm. Please note that if we are unable to reach you, we will move on to the next person on the waitlist as vacancies often occur at the last minute.
