Transfer & Adult Student Orientation is a day long program with a variety of small group sessions to meet the diverse needs of our new transfer and adult students! During your day on campus, plan to learn about a variety of student success resources, find ways to get involved on campus, and meet other new transfer and adult students. While registering for your orientation date, you will also have the option to indicate that you want to meet with an Academic Advisor and enroll in courses during the program.

We look forward to meeting you at Transfer & Adult Student Orientation! 

All dates for TASO have passed. For students starting Spring 2016, the date will be posted in November.

A few things you can do before Orientation:

  • Pay your $150 New Transfer Confirmation Deposit* on PAWS
  • Apply for or transfer your Financial Aid
  • Meet with your Advisor and enroll in courses. Advising and course enrollment is incorporated into orientation however you do not have to wait until orientation to complete advising and course enrollment.
  • Get your ID card in Mellencamp Hall 274. You will be able to obtain a student ID card any time after paying your new transfer or new freshman fee but this option is also available during orientation.
  • Find out about housing options: On-campus & Off-campus. Students interested in on-campus housing should consider the Transfer Living Learning Community.

*This deposit is not refundable if you attend TASO or Enroll in classes at any time.
