Welcome, New Transfer Students!

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

As a transfer student, we know this is not your first time on a college campus, and we value the experience you bring to our community. We have specially designed orientation programs to make your transition as seamless as possible. These include Transfer Summer Registration Days and Transfer Fall Orientation.

These programs build on what you already know and highlight the unique opportunities and resources USD has to offer. You will learn more about your transferred coursework and how to register for courses, and you will have the opportunity to connect with several on-campus resources that will help you succeed academically.

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, which will guide you through the required steps you will need to complete prior to registering for courses.

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

If you have any questions, please email transfer@sandiego.edu.
