Welcome, New Transfer Students!

Our orientation programs are specially designed for you as a new transfer student.

As a transfer student, we know this is not your first time on a college campus, and we value the experience you will bring to our community. Once you have confirmed your enrollment and submitted your deposit through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, you can begin working through the Registration and New Student Checklist. This checklist will guide you through the required tasks you will need to complete prior to registering for courses and arriving to campus for orientation.

We have specially designed our Spring Orientation program to help make your transition as seamless as possible. This program will build on what you already know and highlight the unique opportunities and resources USD has to offer. You will attend new student convocation, meet other new transfer students, learn more about the requirements of your school or college, and connect with several on-campus resources that will help you succeed academically.

We are here to support you through your transition, and are committed to your success as a new transfer student at USD.
