An estimated 60 percent of college graduates will have attended more than one institution in the course of their undergraduate experience. With community college enrollment increasing dramatically nationwide, recruiting and retaining transfer students at four-year institutions has become a priority among university administrators. It is vital for administrators to work collaboratively across campus toward creating a transfer-friendly culture to better serve this emerging population at their institutions.

Join us for a webcast that will address the pressing issues surrounding transfer student orientation. Focusing on the experience of two practitioners, this webcast will provide an overview of considerations for customizing your transfer-student orientation program.


Directors, assistant directors, and coordinators of transfer student success, as well as directors, assistant directors, and coordinators of orientation programs, will benefit from this program. Administrators responsible for the coordination of transfer student orientation, ongoing transfer student programming and success, and transfer student advising will benefit and are encouraged to attend, as well as those responsible for overseeing the programmatic and advising needs of other special student populations. This program is specifically designed for those institutions with little experience with transfer students or those institutions that are experiencing a growing transfer student population.
