Transfer Student Orientation

The Office of New Student and Carolina Parent Programs (NSCPP) welcomes you and your family to Carolina. Our office is here to support you and your family as you transition from your previous institution to UNC-Chapel Hill.

One of the many ways that we are here to help you is through our comprehensive summer orientation program. All transfer students are required to attend Transfer Student Orientation, a one-day program offered over the summer. Although you are familiar with the college environment, you will find there are similarities and differences to navigating Carolina compared to your previous institution. At Orientation, you will learn faculty expectations and strategies for being a successful student in the Carolina classroom, meet with an academic advisor, begin to connect with other students, learn about the expectations for living and learning in the diverse Carolina community and gain insight on campus resources to support you toward graduation. Actively participating in Transfer Orientation is an important aspect of facilitating your transition to Carolina.

Transfer Orientation also offers a number of opportunities for family members. In a separate yet concurrent Family program, participants will hear from numerous faculty, University administrators, and current students about how to partner with the University to support your success and learning. We welcome and encourage family and guests to attend Orientation and learn about how to get involved at Carolina as a family member.   

Please review this site to learn more about our staff, programs and services for transfer students. Be sure to let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you at Orientation!
