About Transfer Orientation

Transfer students are an important part of our university community and we want you to feel at home here. As your first step towards connecting to SFA, you are encouraged to take part in Transfer Orientation. Attendance is not required, however, it is highly recommended. Parents and/or family members are welcome to attend.

Students attending Transfer Orientation will find that academic advising and course registration are streamlined. Those students who choose not to attend Transfer Orientation are responsible for contacting their respective academic departments for times and dates that academic advisors are available.
