Transfer Student Orientation

Fall 2023 Transfer Student Orientation

The Fall 2023 Transfer Student Orientation schedule is available here. Transfer Student Orientation is designed to offer you a robust introduction to life at Vanderbilt, including informational sessions and small-group discussions that will help you navigate your academic program, campus resources, extracurricular activities, and student life on Vanderbilt’s campus. Through TSO, you’ll also have the opportunity to connect with Transfer Student Leaders (juniors and seniors who transferred to Vanderbilt themselves) and other incoming transfer students. Your Transfer Student Leader (TSL) will serve as a guide throughout your first semester at Vanderbilt.

Transfer Student Orientation begins on Transfer Move-In Day (Friday, August 18, 2023) and concludes at the end of the first week of classes.
