Dear New Student,
Our pivot to remote learning this Fall means we are transitioning our welcome to a virtual experience. With classes set to begin on August 31, we can’t wait to greet you through our virtual Welcome Days the weekend prior, Friday, August 28–Saturday, August 29.
This needed adjustment to uphold the health and safety of our entire university does not diminish our commitment to you: We are ready to help you discover the people and resources you need to connect and thrive in APU’s Christ-centered academic community.
We truly appreciate your flexibility as we approach the Fall with a collective sense of responsibility to one another. Please note that all incoming students must attend Welcome Days. Registration is required! Already registered? You’re all set. If not, please do so today.
Although the cost to deliver programs and services does not decrease in an online environment, the university will waive several fees for the Fall 2020 semester, including the $100 New Student Orientation fee. As our gift, you will receive an APU Welcome Kit to your mailing address on file. The package will include an “I Heart APU” T-shirt, an Azusa Pacific University cloth mask, hand sanitizer, APU resource guide, and items to accompany your virtual welcome experience. To ensure you receive your kit on time, please register by Wednesday, August 12.
In addition, we want to extend an added sense of hospitality to your guests by covering their $40 participation fee. Guests who already registered for Welcome Days before the virtual transition will receive a refund within 14 days. Each new student may receive up to 2 complimentary “I Heart APU” T-shirts and Azusa Pacific University cloth mask bundles for guests upon registration.
We deeply appreciate your understanding during these unprecedented times. Please visit our updated Welcome Days website for the event schedule, registration form, and additional information. Contact us at email@example.com for any additional support.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you into the APU community!
APU Welcome Days Team
