Pre-Flight Programs will help you get involved on campus early, meet other students with similar interests, and acclimate to your new home away from home — all before Take Flight Orientation officially begins. You’ll be able to move into your fall residence hall room when you arrive to campus for your Pre-Flight Program, which is several days before the rest of new students will arrive. Commuter students will be able to live on campus for the duration of their Pre-Flight Program if interested.

Program Costs

There is no cost to participate, however, to reserve your spot students will have a $25 refundable registration deposit placed on their account. Following your attendance at Pre-Flight Programs, the $25 registration deposit will be credited back to your account. This in no way affects your overall financial assistance package, and there is no payment required at time of registration. If you have questions about the refundable registration deposit, please contact Samantha Proffitt, Senior Director of Student Engagement.


All new incoming students to Susquehanna University (residential and commuter) beginning in the fall are eligible to register for a Pre-Flight Program. Please review each program’s eligibility requirements as some programs have specific eligibility requirements. For questions regarding specific programs, please reach out to individual program coordinators listed below.

New international students and new fall student-athletes who may arrive early to campus will be invited to attend evening programming as your schedule allows.

Program Registration

To secure your spot, register using the link below. Students will be asked to rank programs according to their preference. While students’ first choice is not guaranteed, we do our best to place students in one of their top three choices.

If programs reach registration capacity prior to the registration deadline, registration will turn into a waitlist. We will do our best to accommodate as programs fill.

Registering early does not guarantee a first-choice placement as some programs have specific eligibility requirements.

2022 Registration has now closed.
