The AIM Program

2022 AIM Program dates: Wednesday, August 17th through Friday, August 19th

The AIM Program serves as an extended orientation opportunity for incoming students as they make the transition to college. AIM students take part in a multi-day program the week before the fall semester begins. These students move into their residence hall rooms early, get acclimated to campus before classes begin and participate in a series of social activities and success seminars designed to prepare students for both the social and academic transition from high school to college.

There is a $160 fee for all participants which covers the cost of housing, food, transportation and activities for the duration of the program. If you would like to speak with someone about the program please contact Dan McDevitt at dmcdevit@sju.edu.

Registration Note: Early Arrival Program registration for the Class of 2026 is now CLOSED.
