Transfer Student Orientation


Parent Tip:

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.

Fall New Students

Transfer students are encouraged to participate in the Summer Orientation session on Monday, August 1, 2016 (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 Session 3 on August 3, 2015, should plan to participate in ROAR Session 5 on Thursday, August 27, 2015. Transfer students will be contacted by an academic advisor to register for fall classes before August 28, 2015.

Things to do to prepare for Transfer Student Orientation:

1. Submit your enrollment deposit and Statement of Intent.

  • You cannot register for Summer Orientation until you are deposited.
  • Once you have deposited, you will receive your Queens username and password within 5 business days.  You will need this in order to register for orientation.
