Transfer Orientation

Welcome to BSU !

The next steps for transfer students are designed to provide them with the information and guidance needed to make their transition to BSU successful. Students are encouraged to bookmark this website and regularly check back. This page will be updated often with important details, updates and new opportunities about their orientation experience.


Upon acceptance, each student will receive information via email prompting them to submit their deposit. Deposits may be submitted at Once a student submits their deposit, they will receive a confirmation email and the Transfer Checklist.

The Transfer Checklist guides students through the orientation process for a smooth transition to BSU. The steps outlined are very important and each step should be completed thoroughly. We believe once you complete these steps, you will be in a great position to continue your academic journey at BSU.

If at any point you have questions or need additional information, please know that Transfer Services is dedicated to supporting you during your transition. We encourage you to reach out and connect with a transfer representative at any point at 508.531.2686 or email

Transfer Welcome

This event will take place before the start of the semester.

We are excited to personally welcome transfer students to Bridgewater State University. The Transfer Welcome is an opportunity for students to connect with their major department, faculty, deans and peers. It is a time to learn more about the many campus resources available to support their transition to BSU.

All new day transfer students are required to register and attend the Transfer Welcome. Registration for the Transfer Welcome is at the end of their Transfer Beginnings online orientation program. Details for the Transfer Welcome will be sent to their BSU email approximately one week prior to the event.

If you have any questions about this event, please contact Transfer Services.
