Transfer Summer Orientation – What To Expect

These sessions will be a one-day experience.*

The day typically begins at 9:30am (Check-In will run from 8:00am to 10:00am) and will wrap up between 5:00 – 6:00pm. Students are encouraged to contact the Office of Academic and Career Services at 540-654-1010 for course registration prior to their arrival. Time will, however, be provided for any additional advising necessary and for students to take care of business they may have on campus.

During the orientation program, students and their guests will have the opportunity to learn about student life on campus, student accounts, how to get engaged on their new campus, and will have the opportunity to explore educational sessions together.
