Transfer Orientation

Welcome to the BSU family!

At Bridgewater State University, we strive to make sure all students feel welcomed and supported as they navigate their transition to our campus community.

The next steps for transfer students are designed to provide them with the information and guidance needed to make their transition to BSU successful. Our comprehensive onboarding process outlined on the Transfer Checklist will allow students to become familiar with BSU’s campus, campus services, academic and registration processes, while also connecting students with the appropriate resources that ensure academic success.

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 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

We look forward to working with you and seeing you around campus this upcoming semester!
