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 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.

Review Pre-Flight Program information below and learn about what each program has to offer!

Program Costs

There is no cost to participate, but students will be charged a $25 refundable registration deposit to reserve your spot. 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. If you have questions about the refundable registration deposit, please contact Samantha Proffitt, Director of First-Year Experience.


All new incoming students to Susquehanna University (residential and commuter) beginning in fall 2021 are eligible to register for a Pre-Flight Program. Please review each program’s eligibility requirements as some programs are by invitation only.

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, students can expect to be placed in one of their top-three choices.

If programs reach registration capacity prior to the registration deadline, the form will build a waitlist.
