Orientation for Transfer Students

Villanova welcomes you to our campus community! By participating in the Transfer Student Orientation program, incoming students will see services and programs crafted specifically to help you transition to your new University home.

About the Program

Transfer Orientation provides students the opportunity to learn what's unique about Villanova, and to meet other transferring students also beginning their first year here. The program is led by a group of Transfer Counselors (TCs), veteran transfer students who have successfully made the transition to Villanova, and who are now eager to support you during your own transition. Orientation will focus on the issues that are most important to transferring students. It's also a great way to find out how you can get involved on campus and take advantage of all that Villanova has to offer!

Transfer Orientation will begin on Thursday, August 20 at 12:00 pm with a luncheon for transfer students and families in the Bartley Exchange.  It will be a great opportunity to meet the Orientation Staff and learn about the events that will take place over the four-day program. From there, students and families will head over to the Campus Green for the University Welcome from the Villanova President and other important members of our campus community.  Throughout the Orientation program, new transfer students will attend events, presentations, and evening entertainment that will highlight what it really means to be a Wildcat.
