Transfer Dates and Schedules

New Student & Family Programs welcomes you and your family to Carolina. Our office is here to support you and your family as you transition to UNC-Chapel Hill.

New Student & Family Programs plans to hold New Student & Family Orientation in person this summer unless it is determined to be unsafe given the pandemic; in which case our orientation programs will align with University guidance and strategy deemed necessary at that time.

Transfer Orientation registration is now open:

When registering for your Transfer New Student Orientation session, please be aware that all dates are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please plan to attend your 1-day on-campus session arriving no later than 8:30 a.m. ET until 6:00 p.m. ET in order to complete all Orientation activities. Scheduled Orientation activities including academic information sessions and small groups are not able to be requested, adjusted, or switched. 

You have three choices of dates to attend the mandatory Transfer Orientation program. Please note that sessions have limited capacity and reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
