To successfully transition to Muhlenberg College, a list of items to complete, including links to forms and websites, has been provided below. Please note the various due dates for each item. Your Summer Advising Guides and Orientation Leaders will continue to communicate these priorities to you.
Welcome to Muhlenberg, Class of 2026! You’ve joined a wonderful place. Incredible learning experiences, intellectual discoveries, new friendships, and great memories of a lifetime await you. It’s wonderful to have you as part of this smart and caring community.
All who have come before you remember this time as one of the deep and mixed emotions: eagerness to get underway, anticipation about diving into challenging courses and meeting new people, and apprehension about the many unknowns. What will our roommates be like? How will we make a whole new set of friends? What are college classes and professors really like? Where do we go for help (which we all need every now and then)?
You’ll find that each question will lead to choices that shape your life at Muhlenberg—to friends who will nourish and support you, to courses that will open doors to new ideas and interests, to leadership activities you didn’t know that you’d love so much and to the extensive support that our campus community provides for your mental, physical and spiritual life.
This website will help you take those first steps—even before you arrive on campus. The menu bar connects you to important information about Summer Advising, Spring Orientation, Orientation Weekend, and much more. Use this information to get off to a great start at Muhlenberg. And let us know if we can help. We look forward to seeing you soon!
