While attending orientation is not required for new transfer students, New Student Programs has created asynchronous modules and optional in-person sessions to help you in your transition to KSU.

Asynchronous Modules

All transfer students should sign-up for our free asynchronous modules using the orientation sign-up system.

  • New Student Programs strongly encourages all new transfer students to complete these modules before registering for classes. Topics will include academic advising and course registration, campus involvement, and more!
  • Students will complete these modules at their own pace online. Modules will be available starting Friday, March 15, 2024.

Optional Events

Transfer students can select an optional in-person orientation date on the “Optional Events” tab for a fee during the sign-up process. One guest may be added during sign-up. The following OPTIONAL session dates are available for TRANSFER students:

Date Time* Campus/Majors
