Transfer Orientation

Welcome to the BSU Family!

The next steps for transfer students are designed to provide them with the information and guidance needed to make their transition to BSU successful.

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 is designed to provide students with the information and guidance needed to make their transition to BSU successful. It will familiarize students with BSU’s campus, campus services, advising and the registration process. The steps outlined in the Transfer Checklist 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
