Transfer Student

Incoming Transfer Students (for fall 2016)

Congratulations on your decision to be a Golden Gopher! Orientation & First-Year Programs provides quality transitional experiences including Orientation and Transfer Welcome Days to help you connect to the U of M. Once you confirm your enrollment then you can begin working on your New Student Checklist, which will allow you to select an Orientation date, complete placement testing, and other tasks that need to be completed before your first semester.

Current Transfer Students: Take advantage of the TSN

You may have heard about the Transfer Student Network (TSN) during Transfer Welcome Day. This program pairs you with a Transfer Insider (a current transfer student) during your first semester on campus. Your Transfer Insider will be your go-to person to help you adjust to your new home. Look for a monthly email from your Transfer Insider and connect with them over a free coffee treat!

At Home in MN
