Transfer Orientation is optional but highly encouraged.
If you are transferring less than 12 credit hours then you are required to attend our First-Year Orientation.
What is Orientation?
Orientation is a way for the student and their parents and family to get to know the campus prior to the first day of classes. Orientation sessions provide valuable student services and academic information critical for success and a strong first semester. Orientation covers degree planning, academic concerns, student support programs, housing and food services, commuter information, and more.
