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.

Transfer Advising Workshops

All new day transfer students are required to sign up and attend an in-person Transfer Advising Workshop. During this time students will learn about BSU’s academic policies, finalize schedules, and have an advisor review their DegreeWorks.

Once you sign up for the Transfer Advising Workshop, please read your confirmation email for a detailed view of the schedule. As you will see, there are certain portions of the event that are optional so please view which aspects best suit your learning needs. One week before the event, more information will be sent to your new BSU email address. Once you sign up for a Transfer Advising Workshop, you will receive a Registration PIN. 

Note: If you are unable to attend a workshop due to availability or transportation challenges, you may arrange a phone call or virtual appointment with the Transfer Services department by emailing
