Transfer Students

As a Transfer Student, you are required to participate in an orientation program, however you have the option to choose between the two orientation experiences offered - the Transfer Program (in-person experience) or the Online Transfer Orientation (virtual experience).

Transfer Program (In-Person Experience-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

Transfer Program (In-Person Experience-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)

August 23-27, 2014

The transfer program is separate from NSO but runs concurrently and is designed specifically to meet your needs. Like NSO for first-year students the program supports your transition by helping to welcome and acclimate you to campus and Flyer life. Move-in for transfer students takes place on the Sunday morning prior to the first day of classes, and the transfer orientation program begins right after move-in finishes. As a transfer student, you are welcome to bring up to two guests with you on Sunday.

What to Expect

  • At check-in you (and your guests) will receive your nametag and meet the new student programs staff, including your transfer team leader.
  • You will receive a formal welcome from the University administration and participate in the new student pinning ceremony.
  • You will review the schedule, participate in breakout session, and learn about the many activities available for you to participate in during the next several days, including transfer team times.
  • Your guests will attend most sessions with you. There is a breakout session designed specifically for parents and family.
  • New student programs is going green and will only print a limited number of paper copies of the NSO schedule. You are encouraged to download the NSO Guidebook App to use throughout the four-day experience.
