All new students are required to participate in both days of ADVANCE, and in the June and July ADVANCE sessions, spend Thursday night on campus. If you need to arrive early and stay an extra night (Wednesday), you will have the opportunity to indicate that when you register online.

Transfer ADVANCE will be held Aug. 13-14, 2019. It is an orientation program especially designed to meet the needs of all new transfer students. During this two-day experience, you'll learn about campus resources and opportunities, meet key university leaders and get connected to other new students. If a you have not already registered for classes, you will meet with an academic counselor and select your class schedule.
