Transfer Students

Transfer Student Orientation 

 Following the guidance of government and health agencies as well as the direction of the University, Transfer students admitted for the summer or fall 2021 term, will attend a virtual, one-day orientation program. We understand that you may still have a lot of questions about your transition to a new university. 

The Eagle View Orientation Staff remains committed to providing the same level of information and support as new students embark on their transition, so please continue to check our website, your Eagle E-mail, and social media for the most up-to-date information.
