Transfer Student Orientation

Welcome Transfer Students!

All new students will participate in a Spring 2024 Orientation program on Tuesday, January 16, 2024 in the afternoon. 
During Orientation, you will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of sessions based on your interests. You will also connect with your peers and learn about valuable resources and involvement opportunities on campus. 

Family and supporters are welcome to join us for a concurrent Orientation program. 

Registration for Orientation is available through your Application Portal. Please note that Orientation registration is available to all deposited students that have met the immunization and health requirements


Registering for Classes

Beginning in mid-November, if you have paid your enrollment deposit and met immunization requirements, an academic advisor will contact you to schedule an advising appointment and assist you in registering for classes. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]
