The Transition Orientation Experience

We want all transfer students to make a smooth transition to IUPUI. After you’ve been admitted, you’ll be required to participate in a three-part Transition Orientation Experience that will prepare you to be successful here.

You can sign up for your Transition Orientation Experience after you have accepted your offer of admission and created your IUPUI computing account. You will be able to sign up for all three parts of the Transition Orientation Experience at the same time.

We strongly recommend that you sign up as early as possible—you won’t be able to register for classes until you’ve completed all three parts of your Transition Orientation Experience.

Part 1: Transfer Tuesday Webinar

The first step in your Transition Orientation Experience is the Transfer Tuesday Webinar, during which you’ll prepare for your first academic advising appointment. This is an online seminar that will guide you through reading your Transfer Credit Report, resolving issues with undistributed credit, and finding advising resources.

Please note that the webinars are offered only on Tuesdays. You must complete the webinar before you attend your Transition Orientation Program and Orientation Advising Appointment.

Part 2: Transition Orientation Program

After you’ve completed the Transfer Tuesday Webinar, you’ll attend a daylong Transition Orientation Program on the IUPUI campus. Designed to meet the unique needs of transfer students, the Transition Orientation Program includes a campus resource fair, a presentation from your academic unit, and sessions on topics such as information technology resources and health and wellness support.

Part 3: Orientation Advising Appointment

After you’ve attended your Transfer Tuesday Webinar and Transition Orientation Program, you’ll meet your academic advisor during a one-on-one advising appointment to discuss your transfer credits and register for your first semester of classes.
