Transfer Program


The Transfer Orientation Program is a half day program designed to give a comprehensive overview of academic and campus life at Worcester State University. Although transfer students have been to Orientation at their previous institution, it is important to understand that every college is different. Our abbreviated program will allow transfers to become familiar with our campus and the services we provide.  The transfer program will include:

·         An academic overview

·         Explanation of transfer credits

·         Representatives from Student Services

·         Campus tour


Transfer Orientation will be held on Wednesday, August 27th and Thursday, August 28th in the Student Center.  For your convenience, there will be two Transfer Orientation programs that you can choose from.
