Fall 2021 Transfer Student Checklist

1. Access Your BSU User Account

As a new student at BSU, you will receive an email from BSUaccounts@bridgew.edu at the email address used to create your admission account. All information will now be sent to your BSU email. If you have any questions about accessing your account, please contact IT Support at 508.531.2555 or ITSupport@bridgew.edu.

2. Complete Your Transfer Beginnings Online Program

It's time for you to dive in and explore Bridgewater State University as a new bear. Transfer Beginnings will assist you in learning more about the BSU campus and will also explore how to register for your courses. Be sure to follow Transfer Beginnings to the very end as you will then be prompted to sign-up for your Transfer Welcome event. Please click the following the link to access Transfer Beginnings.

Please note: At this juncture, you do not need to sign up for Transfer Welcome.

If you have questions, please contact Transfer Services at 508.531.2686 or TransferCentral@bridgew.edu.

3. Register for your courses

The Transfer Beginnings Online Orientation Program taught you how to register for your courses using the online registration system called InfoBear. You should now have your registration PIN, which can be found in your Student Profile. Your PIN will allow you to register. The sooner you register for classes, the more options you will have in selecting courses that meet your scheduling needs. Please attempt to register for all your courses prior to any advising session. If you have the appropriate Math and English courses and/or SAT scores on file, you will not be required to complete placement testing.

4. Connect with a Transfer Advisor

If you would like additional assistance with your course selections or navigating the registration process, please email TransferCentral@bridgew.edu and request an advising session.

If you have a documented disability and need to connect with a representation regarding accessibility or accommodations, please contact Student Accessibility Services at 508.531.2194 or SAS@bridgew.edu.

5. Submit All Final Official College Transcripts

If you have not already done so, send all final official transcripts from previously attended institutions to the Office of Admission. Accurate placement testing requirements, transfer credit evaluations, and degree audits cannot be determined until these documents have been received and processed.

6. Submit your BSU Health & Wellness Form 

You must have a Student Health and Wellness Form on file with the Office of Health Services within 30 days of registering for classes. Please allow enough time to have your doctor’s signature and appropriate inoculations, if needed. If you have questions about your health form, please contact 508.531.1252. 

If you wish to waive your health insurance, please opt out by following the steps outlined on the University Health Plan (available beginning July 12).

7. Connect Card ID & Parking Permit 

To obtain your parking permit, please click: MyParking. For more information, please contact 508.531.2897 or parking@bridgew.edu

To obtain your BSU Connect Card ID, please click: Student ID. For more information, please contact 508.531.2897 or connectcard@bridgew.edu

8. Download the BSU mobile app and join the New Bears
