Dear %%First Name%%:

As a new transfer student, you have the opportunity to participate in the University’s Transfer Welcome Days program, August 31-September 3. This program offers exciting and valuable activities to assist you in your transition to the U of M and to connect you with the community and campus.  We recognize many of the Transfer Welcome Days Programs occur before your assigned move-in day.  Because of this, we would like to invite you to participate in early move-in so you can attend these programs and have more time to get settled on campus.  For the full Transfer Welcome Days Schedule download the “New Transfer Students!” guide on the U Minnesota app. For details on how to download the app, please see here.

There is a $24 fee per day that is associated with the early move-in process.  The Orientation & First-Year Programs office will pay these fees contingent upon your attendance at Transfer Welcome Days.  You have the option to move in on Thursday, August 31 or Friday, September 1.

Thursday Move-In
If you want to move into your residence hall or Radius Thursday, August 31, you may do so for an early move-in fee of $24, but the fee will be waived if you attend the Tailgate and Football Game event Thursday, August 31.  If you request early move-in and do not attend the event, you will be charged a total of $48 to your account.  If you would like to move in on Thursday, September 1, please complete an early move-in request at here.  This must be completed by Tuesday, August 15.

Friday Move-In
If you want to move into your residence hall or Radius Friday, September 1, you may do so for an early move-in fee of $24, but the fee will be waived if you attend the Transfer Kickoff event Friday, September 1.  If you request early move-in and do not attend this event, you will be charged $24.
