Transfer Student Orientation

Transfer Student Orientation is a day long orientation specifically designed for incoming transfer students.  The program is held in early August for the Fall semester and in early January for the Spring semester. 



Students will receive a Transfer Student Information Survey via email after they deposit to the university.  This survey should be completed as soon as possible as it will help confirm the information that is on record, and also start the process for review of transfer coursework and academic advisor assignment.  


Students entering in Fall 2020 must attend a virtual transfer orientation on Friday, August 7, 2020. On this date, students receive valuable information about resources on campus will meet with an academic advisor, and register for fall classes.

Students who do not attend transfer student orientation on Friday, August 7, 2020 must attend Turning Titan: New Student Orientation (Tuesday, August 11 - Sunday, August 16, 2020). Students can also move into their residence hall at this point. 

NOTE: Students who attend virtual transfer orientation on Friday, August 7, 2020 and do NOT attend Turning Titan: New Student Orientation are invited to move to campus with returning students.
