Welcome, New Transfer Students!

Our orientation programs are especially designed for you, 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, Transfer Pre-Orientation Camping Adventure and Transfer Fall Orientation.

These programs build on what you already know and highlight the unique opportunities and resources USD has to offer. Additionally, you will find out about your transferred coursework, registering for classes, and how to be academically successful at USD.

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 that will guide you through the required steps and important tasks you will need to complete prior to registering for courses and the first day of classes.

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