On-Campus vs. Online Orientation

We understand that being a new transfer student can sometimes be overwhelming as you adjust to a new campus. To help with your transition, we have provided two program options to best meet your needs.

On-Campus Transfer Orientation

We offer three (3) on-campus orientation sessions for new transfer students. Transfer students will receive an orientation invitation in April providing instructions on how and when to register for one of these on-campus sessions. For more information about this option, please visit our Transfer Orientation Agenda site.

  • Wednesday, May 27
  • Friday, July 24
  • Wednesday, August 12

Note: There is no fee for new transfer students to attend on-campus orientation. 


Online Transfer Orientation

In your orientation invitation, you will be provided instructions for our online transfer orientation option. This option provides transfer students with a brief introduction to the University, offers insight on campus resources you will have access to, and provides a glimpse into student life at Tech.

This program is designed for incoming transfer students who:

  • Live more than 100 miles from campus
  • Are transferring from another institution with 30 or more credit hours
  • Are returning to school after a significant break in their education
  • Have full-time work or family commitments
  • Are planning to take online classes only
  • Students usually complete online transfer orientation within 45 minutes to 1 hour.


Orientation Registration & Completion

Registration for on-campus Transfer Orientation and Online Orientation will be available in April. 

Admitted students will receive information in mid-late March regarding how to register for and complete their orientation. For questions, please Contact Us!
