This page contains the schedule for move-in/Orientation for our new transfer students. Many of the programs parallel those for incoming first-year student, which are designed to provide advising support, campus information and support for joining a new college community. There are some times during the schedule when you will gather as a transfer cohort so that you can meet other students who share your experience! When you arrive on campus, you will receive a more detailed version of your transfer Orientation schedule.
