Welcome, New Transfer Students!

Our orientation programs are specially designed for you as a new 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 in the Fall.

Transfer Summer Registration Days are optional programs offered to help you register for courses and take care of necessary tasks well before Transfer Fall Orientation. Once you have completed the required steps on the Registration and New Student Checklist and are eligible to request to attend a Transfer Summer Registration Day, you will receive an email with a link to submit your availability.

We have specially designed our Transfer Fall 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 in your first semester. Transfer Fall Orientation is required for all new transfer students starting at USD in the Fall.

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