Transfer Orientation

Transfer Orientation

The next steps for Transfer students are designed to give them the guidance needed to make their transition to BSU successful. Our comprehensive program will allow transfer students to become familiar with our campus, the campus services Bridgewater provides as well as connect students with the proper resources for academic success. Information about registering for these programs is sent to the students' email they 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.

Transfer Student Checklist

Transfer students receive a comprehensive checklist outlining necessary steps to prepare them for entrance to BSU. Below are highlighted a few of the important checklist items for transfer students to complete. Parents/guardians of Transfer students are invited to a separate Family Orientation event. Please visit the Family Orientation site for more information.

  1. Complete “Transfer 101” Online Program
    Only students that have indicated their intention to enroll at BSU can participate. Students will be required to enter their BANNER ID, sent in their acceptance information, to enroll in the course. Students will be cleared to register only upon completion of “Transfer 101.”

  2. Register for Courses
    Students will learn how to register for courses upon completion of “Transfer 101.” Students are encouraged to register for classes early to have more options to meet their scheduling and academic needs. Transfer students are encouraged to register for as many courses as possible prior to attending their selected Transfer Orientation and Advising Workshop.

  3. Register and Attend a Mandatory Transfer Advising Workshop
    Students will be prompted to register at the conclusion of “Transfer 101.” Transfer students must register and attend one Transfer Advising Workshop. Students will meet with an academic advisor from the Academic Achievement Center to finalize their course schedules.

  4. Sign up and Attend the Mandatory Transfer Welcome on Tuesday, January 22nd
    All new day transfer students are required to attend the Transfer Welcome. All communication regarding registration for this event will go to the email address that students used to apply to the university.
