LEP FLYTE Orientation 2024

We're thrilled you decided to enroll in the Learning Effectiveness Program at the University of Denver! 

The LEP's transition support begins with the First LEP Year Total Experience (FLYTE) for students and their families. FLYTE launches in May with our webinar and workshop series and culminates with the on-campus FLYTE Orientation Weekend.

FLYTE Orientation Weekend will take place from Sunday, September 1 to Tuesday, September 3. It includes early move-in, the opportunity to meet your LEP Academic Counselor, social events to get to know other incoming LEP students, and informational sessions for students and family members in attendance.

FLYTE Orientation Weekend

FLYTE Orientation Weekend is scheduled to take place from Sunday, September 1 to Tuesday, September 3. It will not overlap with DU's Discoveries Orientation.

More information about the specific weekend schedule will be communicated throughout the summer. Many families choose to arrive to Denver (if coming from out of state) by Saturday evening so they are ready for early move-in on Sunday morning.

Register here! We'll be sending confirmation emails manually. Please allow us a few business days to process your registration and send you a confirmation email. Thank you for your patience!
