New Student Information & Orientation
Welcome Class of 2025 and Transfer Students!
We are delighted that you will be joining us this fall term, and look forward to meeting you and working with you over the next four years!
We understand that the global COVID-19 pandemic will impact the beginning of your experience at Caltech. Our transition back to campus learning and research will occur in stages, and in ways that are consistent with guidelines set by public health officials. Please visit: Caltech Together - Caltech's coronavirus information and resource website that provides regular updates on Caltech's ongoing response to the pandemic.
COVID-19 aside, the deans' office is ready to help facilitate your transition to Caltech, and this website will hopefully answer many of your questions as you prepare to enroll. Please check back regularly, as we will be updating information over the course of the summer.
Feel free to contact us with questions about any information on this website. Important dates follow, with the understanding that COVID-19 planning may require changes and adjustments:
September 16-17: International Student Orientation.
September 19-26: New Student Orientation.
September 27: Classes begin.
The registrar's office maintains a full online academic calendar and schedule.
