The Transfer Orientation Program is a half day program designed to give a comprehensive overview of academic and campus life at Worcester State University. Although transfer students have been to Orientation at their previous institution, it is important to understand that every college is different. Our abbreviated program will allow transfers to become familiar with our campus and the services we provide. The transfer program will include:
· An academic overview
· Explanation of transfer credits
· Representatives from Student Services
· Campus tour
Transfer Orientation will be held on Thursday, August 29th and Friday, August 30th in the Student Center. For your convenience, there will be two Transfer Orientation programs that you can choose from.
All transfers who will be living on campus in the fall will be able to move into their room prior to and after the Transfer Orientation program. Residence Life and Housing will send out details about the move in process over the summer.
