Transfer Orientation

August 26, 2020

The next steps for transfer students are designed to give them the guidance needed for a successful transition to BSU. Our comprehensive program connects transfer students to the BSU community and introduces them to campus services and resources for academic success. Information about registering for these programs is sent to each student's email address that was provided on the admission application. It is important for students to check this email account, as well as their new BSU account for timely information. Upon acceptance, students will receive information prompting submission of their deposit. If you have not yet done so, deposits may be submitted at

After a student deposits, the student will then receive the Transfer Checklist within 24 hours via email, which will cover several essential features of the BSU experience, as well as how to register for courses. If a student is admitted and deposited prior to the registration period, the student can expect to receive the checklist on or around the week that registration opens. Below you will see a few of the checklist items that transfer students are expected to complete once they receive their Transfer Checklist.

  1. Complete “Transfer 101” Online Program
    Students will be required to enter their BANNER ID, sent in their acceptance information. Upon completion of the Transfer 101 online program, students will automatically be cleared to register for courses.
  2. Register for Courses
    Students will learn how to register for courses during Transfer 101. Students may return to Transfer 101 in the future if they would like to use this online tool as a guide when selecting courses. Students are encouraged to register for classes early as this will provide more options in meeting their scheduling and academic needs. 
  3. Register and Attend the Transfer Welcome
    Students will be prompted to register for a Transfer Welcome at the conclusion of Transfer 101. All new day transfer students are required to attend the Transfer Welcome. After registering for the Transfer Welcome, email confirmation with more detailed information will be sent to the student email address that was provided on the transfer application. If you have questions regarding the Transfer Welcome, please contact the Orientation Office at 508-531-1840 or
