Registration

 

UPDATE: As of 4:15 p.m. on Thursday 6/2, WA is about 90% full, with approximately 20 spaces left between the two sessions - the deadline to register is Sunday, 6/5 at 11:59 p.m.  If WA fills over the weekend/before the deadline, we will send out notifications to those who are on the waiting list ASAP Monday morning. In most years we are able to get many individuals off the waiting list over the course of the summer.

 

Registration for WA works on a first-come, first-served basis.

In most years, we are able to all but guarantee a trip for every student who registers. Lingering supply chain issues from the pandemic mean that depending on demand we may not be able to accommodate every person for WA 2022, though we will certainly try out best. As such, you are not guaranteed a spot on a trip until you receive your trip notification email in early July.

Important note for international students & students in any other mandatory pre-orientation program

In addition to WA, Colgate offers several other optional pre-orientation programs, as well as several programs that are required, such as International Students Orientation and the Alumni Memorial Scholars program. If you are in one of these required groups, you should not sign up for WA Session 2, as all those pre-orientations take place at the same time, and you are required to attend the mandatory program if you are a part of one of those groups. You can see a list of all the optional and mandatory pre-orientations, and their dates here. The good news is that you are able to sign up for WA Session 1, which takes place ahead of the other pre-orientations.
