    Transfer Family Orientation

    As a parent/guardian/support person you play a vital role in your transfer students' experience. You'll begin the TSO experience alongside your student and you'll hear about the many programs, services and opportunities that await them. Then, you'll join some of the ASRP team for a personalized experience during which you'll learn more about how we'll work with you to ensure your students' academic success and adjustment to Montclair State University.

    *Fee Disclosure: Each Family Orientation participant must pay a $20 registration fee (exact change or personal checks only). Onsite registration is permitted. Please note: staff will not have petty cash on hand. We thank you in advance for your understanding.

    Please click on the "blue" Family button once you've logged in to the TSO registration portal and provide all information as requested. Family members are an integral part of transfer student success. We welcome the chance to share information with you about what it means, and what it takes, to be a Red Hawk!
