Transfer Transitions: Orienting You to SUNY Oneonta


Congratulations on making SUNY Oneonta the destination for your academic future. In order to make that future a reality, all new students are required to attend an orientation session before they begin attending classes. SUNY Oneonta's Orientation has three distinct components: an online pre-orientation piece, an in-person session, and programmatic initiatives during the first few weeks of each semester.

New students will move into their residence hall room assignments on Wednesday, August 24th and will have the opportunity to meet with their Orientation Leader (OL), their Resident Advisor (RA), their Transfer Student Mentor (TSM) and other members of their community. On Thursday and Friday, students will attend to key information that they will need to be successful here at SUNY Oneonta. Transfer students will have the opportunity to select from a variety of sessions on Saturday as well as participate in a service project that will connect them with our Center for Social Responsibility and Community.

A more complete schedule is available here.
