Transfer Orientation Dates

Summer 2018

We will assign transfer students to sessions based on their month of birth. This is subject to change if deemed necessary.

If the session to which you are assigned does not work for you and your family, you can switch sessions based on availability when you register for your session.

No changes will be made prior to June 1, 2018 and you will have the ability to change your session when you go online to register.

We expect to assign students to sessions as follows:

Session ID Dates Month of Birth
Transfer Session 1 Monday, July 23 (with Overnight Option, Sunday July 22)  January through June
Transfer Session 2 Tuesday, July 24  (with Overnight Option, Monday July 23)  July through December

Check-in for students and family members for both sessions begins at 7:45 a.m. in Yokum Hall. Session will end by 1 p.m. on the last day. Students who would like to come the night before and stay on campus, will check in from 7 p.m.- 9 p.m.at Moffitt Hall.
