Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take summer classes?
Both SFs and PCs are not allowed to take summer classes during Summer Term 1. SFs are able to take as many classes as they’d like during Summer Term 2 as they do not have any Orientation related responsibilities. PCs are able to take Summer Term 2 classes as long as it does not interfere with normal working hours. Please discuss potential class schedule with the Orientation leadership team before registering for Summer Term 2 classes.
Is remote work available?
University Orientation will be fully in-person. There will be no opportunities for remote work.
Is summer housing provided?
Yes! On-campus summer housing will be provided and paid for by the Orientation Office. Student employees will live in an apartment-style residence with a full kitchen. Exact locations will be announced by BU Housing in May.
Can I have another job/internship in addition to working for Orientation?
SFs will be working on average 20 hours a week during the month of June. SFs can have another job as long as it does not interfere with Orientation responsibilities. PCs cannot have another on-campus job. The PC role is a full-time job throughout the summer.
I am studying abroad during Spring 2023, can I still apply?
Yes! Please indicate on your application you are studying abroad. Orientation will reach out to you about setting up a virtual interview once your application is submitted. All training will take place after the Spring semester ends.
