New Student Registration

At Trevecca, becoming a student is a two-step process that includes ENCOUNTER + Orientation. Both play a vital role in connecting you with the Trevecca community and preparing you for life as a college student.


Your Trevecca story starts with Encounter. A summer event for new freshmen and transfer students, Encounter is a time to immerse yourself in Trevecca’s culture, meet the classmates who’ll become your lifelong friends, and learn all about the things that will set your Trevecca experience apart.

There will also be activities for your parents or guardians, so you don’t want to miss this!

While Encounter isn’t required, we strongly recommend students take part. It’s a great way to explore campus and the city of Nashville, get a jumpstart on your class schedule, and make a few friends. Space is limited, so you need to make a reservation!

Think of orientation as College 101. Set for August, Orientation is required for all incoming students. After you move into your residence hall and wave goodbye to your parents, you’ll finalize your class schedule, learn all the nuts and bolts of being a Trevecca student — including our digital and community life standards — and take part in a few Trevecca traditions.

More information regarding August orientation and move-in dates will be made available around the first week of May. Registration for August orientation will open at that time. The agenda for orientation will be made available in the weeks leading up to each event.

Please register for orientation by August 1. After reserving your spot, you’ll receive confirmation from the Office of Admissions with further details on the event.
