Transfer Orientation


Welcome to UMW!!!

Congratulations on being accepted to the University of Mary Washington

UMW understands that transfer students are a unique population with different needs than the traditional first-time collegiate students.  As such, the transfer student experience is tailored to meet the varying needs of this population.

Transfer Orientation is a mandatory experience with one session during the summer.  At Orientation, students will explore campus, have one-on-one time with an academic advisor if they choose, learn about resources available to them as they transition to academic and student life at UMW, and generally start to become acquainted with activities that they can be involved in at UMW.

Transfer students at UMW do not need to wait until Orientation to begin to set up their course schedules.  Transfer students can start scheduling registration advising appointments with the Office of Academic and Career Services via phone or in person now!   Academic and Career Services may be reached at 540-654-1010.

There is no up front cost for students for the Orientation program as it will be billed to your account. You may bring guests with you but they must be registered to attend there will be a $40 fee for each guest over the age of 7.

Space is limited in each session so please take a look at the dates below to begin planning your trip to Fredericksburg! Registration for Orientation will open on March 1st. Due to technical difficulties, registration will be open at 12:00pm.
