Monday, June 18, 2018*

* New this year: Join us the night before Transfer Orientation for the Overnight Experience!

This orientation session is designed specifically for transfer students. There is limited enrollment for this session based on first come, first served. To reserve your spot, sign-up. (Students must pay their enrollment deposit before signing up for orientation.)

Check-in is at 9 a.m. in Orvis Activities Center. The program will end by 2:30 p.m.

SUNY Alfred has programs, policies, and procedures that differ from your last institution, and this program gives us the opportunity to explain them to you. All incoming students will attend one of our programs. Through our program you will:

  • Learn about campus resources.
  • Learn about academic and campus policies.
  • Set your class schedule and meet with someone from your school of study.
  • Meet other new students.
  • Have fun!

If a transfer student is unable to attend the June 18, 2018 session, they can sign-up for a first-year orientation session in July.

Beginning April 9, 2018, transfer students who have submitted their enrollment deposit may register for courses. Paid students should check their Alfred State email for detailed instructions.
