Transfer Student Orientation
Encourage your transfer student to participate in Orientation.
Even though they may be familiar with college life, things are always a little different at a new school.
Spring New Students
The spring orientation program will take place on Friday, January 9 beginning at 1 p.m. Residential students moving on campus in the spring will move in on Friday, January 9 from 9 a.m.- 11 a.m. Please be sure to register online for the ROAR Session 7. The spring new student orientation program is for all new students and will provide you with important information about campus resources and time to connect with fellow students. Advising for spring students will take place before the spring ROAR session and students will be contacted by Academic Advising to plan their schedule.
Fall New Students
Transfer students are encouraged to participate in the Summer Orientation session on Monday, August 3, 2015 (Session 3). This special one day session is specifically designed for transfer students. During this session, transfer students will find out about campus resources, hear from representatives from their respective schools, and meet upperclassmen who can help answer any questions you may have.
Transfer students unable to attend the July ROAR session, should plan to participate in ROAR Session 5 on Thursday, August 27-28, 2015. Transfer students will be contacted by an academic advisor to register for fall classes before August 28, 2015.

1. Submit your enrollment deposit and Statement of Intent. (You cannot register for Orientation until you are deposited.)
2. Register Online for Orientation.
3. Complete and bring your Student Medical Form.
