Students celebrating at the Prescott Campus Orientation Event


Hello, incoming Eagles. We are excited to welcome you to campus! Be sure to continue to check your Embry-Riddle email address for notices about Orientation and move-in.

A New Student Orientation Guide providing a wealth of information for students and families to prepare for the upcoming semester, including registration instructions, will be mailed to students who have submitted a tuition deposit. We encourage all new Eagles and families to review this guide for all the other valuable information and resources it provides.

If you have housing or move-in questions, please contact Housing & Residence Life at or call 928-777-3744.

Parent/Family Information

An in-person Parent/Family Orientation session will take place on move-in day (Wednesday, Aug. 23).

A robust online Orientation for parents and family members can also be found at

If you have not yet done so, we also encourage you to take a moment to sign up for the Embry-Riddle Parent and Family Experience. This will give you additional access to an ongoing newsletter and other information designed specifically for parents and families, including details and registration access for Parent and Family Weekend.

Advising/Course Registration

If you have questions about course registration, please contact your academic advisor. You should have received a welcome email from your advisor that contained a registration guide and information for how to book an appointment with your advisor should you need to. If you are unsure who your advisor is, please login to ERNIE and click on “My Advisors” located on the left-hand side of your ERNIE homepage. You can find your college registration guide on ERNIE under your college on the Departments page.

Your Orientation Team

Student Orientation Leaders

Our team of current student leaders will be on campus during Orientation to help guide you through Orientation at Embry-Riddle. New students will be placed together in groups led by an Orientation Leader. These groups will get together so that students can meet new people, get questions answered and have fun.
