Transfer Orientation and Course Registration


Transfer students participate in Orientation just like all new students. We offer a number of Orientation sessions in the Spring, Summer and Fall that are specifically designed for transfer students. If you are entering in the Fall semester then you must attend either a Summer Orientation Session or the August Session. Spring admits attend Orientation the three days prior to the beginning of classes. All students are required to attend an Orientation Session.

During Orientation, you will meet in groups to learn about your specific degree requirements and to prepare for making your schedule. Additionally, there is a general advisement meeting where the overall College requirements and the transfer credit evaluation processes are explained. You will then meet in a smaller group with faculty from your major. After this, you will have an individual appointment to meet with a faculty from your chosen major. It is at this point that you will register for your first semester of courses at Oneonta. Registration appointment times are given in order of most completed credits to least. Therefore it is imperative that the Admissions Office receives your final transcript before you come to Orientation
