Transfer Student Orientation
Transfer students have unique needs during new student orientation since they already have some college experience. We offer the Transfer Pre-Orientation so that transfer students may connect early on with resources that will benefit them as an incoming sophomore or junior - connecting with research opportunities and internship support, for example. This is also a great chance to build community with fellow transfer students and get to know the campus before general orientation! Transfer students will still participate in the general New Student Orientation so they can continue deepening their knowledge of Amherst and developing networks of support and community.
