|Sample Schedule for the One-Day Transfer Program will be put up shortly|
Structure of the Transfer-mation Program
The Transfer Orientation program is more of a “Transfer-mation” program for new students who are transferring credits in from another institution. The one-day transfer program runs from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This program is not similar to the freshman Orientation program because it is designed with the needs of transfer students in mind.
We recognize that transfer students have been to college before and have designed your program to take care of the business that needs to be done before beginning classes at UConn. During your Transfer-mation program you will be put in an Orientation group with other new transfer students who are in your school or college. Each group will be led by an Orientation leader who will take you through the program. During your program, our offices and services will be devoted exclusively to helping you make a smooth transition to the University.
During Transfer-mation you will meet with an academic advisor in your school/college and register for classes, obtain your UConn ID (if you uploaded a photo for your ID prior to Orientation), attend some student life sessions that are mandatory for all new university students, learn about UConn’s academic and community expectations of you as a new student here, meet with a transfer credit evaluator if you have questions about your credit evaluation, and attend an information fair that will provide you with a lot of valuable information. An optional campus walking tour will be offered at the end of the day for those who want one.
END OF THE TRANSFER-MATION PROGRAM – The program will end between 4:30 – 5:00 p.m. Please plan to stay until that time. Students who choose to leave before the official end of the program will have the classes that they registered for dropped from their schedule. They will be able to re-register when the Add/Drop Process begins in late July.
