Guide for Transfer Students

Southern Connecticut State University has developed different orientation programs specifically designed to meet the needs of transfer students. These programs are based on students' academic and personal lives. For each program date listed below, transfer students will have the opportunity to choose which track best suits their personal and academic needs. Each day, the program will begin at 8am and conclude by 5pm. Times may vary slightly based on the specific track chosen.

During all of these sessions, transfer students will receive vital information to assist them in being successful and meet with an academic advisor to register for their courses.
