Welcome to Vanderbilt! We are so excited that your family has joined the Vanderbilt community.

Over the summer, our office will send dedicated emails to transfer families, each with important information about your student’s upcoming arrival on campus.

Your New VU was designed to give you a glimpse into your first year at Vanderbilt and will help guide the decisions ahead of you. On this site, there is key information about the mandatory Transfer Student Orientation, fall course registration, as well as how and when to turn in required forms. Your New VU will help you learn more about the systems in place to support student health, wellness, and safety, and take a look at the wide range of opportunities that make up Vanderbilt student life.
