After completing Online Orientation you will be ready contact your academic advisor in order to enroll in your first term classes.

Optional In-Person Orientation

Transfer students are welcome to attend an in-person Orientation session, though it’s not required. The “Transfer Track” is facilitated by Transfer and Commuter Connections, featuring a transfer-specific agenda that is both relevant and fun.

Fall 2016

The one-day “Transfer Track” sessions help new transfer students transition to the university. The program includes:

  • Check-in, lunch, and student services expo
  • Welcome session presentations 
  • Academic sessions with presentations about academic colleges
  • Academic advising and enrollment (one-on-one meetings with academic advisors) 
  • Living on Campus presentation
  • Dinner

Prior to attending Orientation, complete your Priority Enrollment profile online so academic advisors can confirm your transfer credits and build a preliminary schedule for your first semester. You’ll review this together in-person during Orientation.
