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).

The 2018 Transfer Brochure is available here.

Transfer Program

(In-Person Experience-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED)
August 20, 2018

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 takes place on Monday with an informal dinner on Sunday evening. As a transfer student, you are welcome to bring up to two guests with you on Monday.

What to Expect
  • At check-in you (and your guests) will receive your nametag and meet the new student programs staff.
  • 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 NSP App to use throughout the experience.
