Vanderbilt welcomes transfer students to campus

The Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs launched an online Transfer Student Orientation program on Aug. 15 to help support the fall 2020 incoming transfer cohort.

Through this program, all incoming transfer students will complete a series of online modules designed to meet their academic and personal needs. During the two-week orientation period, transfer students will meet virtually with their Transfer Group, a smaller cohort of 13-15 incoming transfers led by an upper-division Transfer Student Leader (TSL).

On Aug. 22, all new transfers will be invited to visit campus for a drop-by welcome event, where they’ll have the opportunity to meet their TSL in person, receive a gift from the university, and pick up their Commodore Card. Before classes begin, they also will be invited to participate in a campus tour, led by an orientation leader. Students will be required to register for these events in advance and to abide by all COVID-19 guidelines if they choose to attend.
