Transfer & Adult - Spring & Summer Semester

Students walking to class together, talking

Students who are transferring from another institution or are 23 or older and have not yet attended college are required to attend our Transfer and Adult orientation session. This session is also required for non-degree and second bachelor's students. We look forward to helping you transition to USA and will familiarize you with the campus, student services, and assist you in registering for classes.

New students must be admitted to the University before attending orientation. The one-time, non-refundable orientation fee of $50 will be automatically added to your first tuition bill.

Summer 2020 Orientation will be made available to admitted students in an online format. Details and instructions will be emailed to registered students in May.


The Summer 2020 Transfer and Adult Orientation is:
