Orientation 2012: Information for Families

To all the families of the newly admitted Class of 2016,

Congratulations and welcome to the Sarah Lawrence Community! We wanted to share a few pieces of helpful information as you help your student to plan for their transition to Sarah Lawrence. The first is that all new and transfer students will be checking in and moving into the residence halls on Saturday, September 1, 2012. The orientation schedule for parents and families (September 1) is now available for download.
The second is that once newly admitted students submit their admission deposit, they will receive an e-mail confirming that it was received along with directions on how to access their Gryphon E-Mail and MySLC. We strongly encourage students to access both as soon as possible because the College will be communicating only through the student’s Gryphon E-Mail. Your student will also receive a Summer Checklist for Orientation 2012 which provides information and deadlines for the students to complete before arriving on September 1, 2012. (See the sidebar to download this checklist). While we can’t emphasize enough how important it is for your student to complete the forms themselves, we have found over the years that the families play a very important role when it comes to completing the necessary medical documentation. Therefore we have provided you with direct access to those forms (see sidebar). Should you or your student have any questions about the different requirements please contact those specific offices listed.
The last piece of information is that new incoming students to Sarah Lawrence College do not need to submit a housing deposit since housing is required for all first year students.
We are excited to have you join our community!
