Welcome Class of 2020

Saint Vincent College’s Orientation Program is known throughout the region as an extensive, informative, fun-filled experience. Orientation at Saint Vincent includes a team of faculty, administrators and more than 140 student volunteers who work to make each incoming student’s transition to SVC a smooth one. Each student has numerous questions and concerns about college life and it is SVC’s primary goal to address these in a personal, constructive way.

Orientation Program
Assessment and the Enrollment Portfolio 
Getting connected with Saint Vincent College through the enrollment process involves accessing the Saint Vincent email account assigned to you, logging in to Blackboard, completing an interest inventory, language assessment and enrollment portfolio, and registering for orientation in June or July.
Getting started

To begin, we recommend using a desktop or laptop computer and Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer browser version 8, 9, 10 or 11. Each incoming student is mailed a packet including an Enrollment Checklist. Follow the steps on the checklist, using the Blackboard tip sheet for any difficulties with that system. The video on this page will walk you through the process. If you find that you still need assistance, please contact your admission counselor, who will help you to resolve the issue or connect you with someone who can.

During academic orientation, you will: 

  • complete a modern language inventory
  • learn about academic policies and procedures at Saint Vincent
  • learn about residence and student life at the college
  • meet with faculty to discuss your freshmen schedule
  • have your ID picture taken
  • finalize financial aid, if necessary

For more information, including move-in details, access to email, and check class schedule, please check out the Saint Vincent Portal.

For general orientation questions, please contact Deanna Wicks, assistant director of residence life and orientation coordinator, at deanna.wicks@stvincent.edu or 724-805-2817.

We look forward to welcoming you to Saint Vincent College this fall!
