Accepted Transfer Students

Welcome to the College of Humanities and Social Sciences! We know it can be tough to adjust to a new school, and we want to help make your transition here as smooth as possible. A successful transition begins by establishing a relationship with your faculty advisor.

You must contact your advisor before you can register, and this must be completed BEFORE you attend Transfer Student Orientation.
