Transfer Info

Transfer Orientation:

Orientation gives you the chance to get to know the New Paltz Campus and Community. You will be able to meet other new students, learn important New Paltz policies and procedures, and ease yourself into being a Hawk!

Transfer students will choose a one-day orientation session held in the summer. Students will have the opportunity to meet with academic faculty in order to plan their first semester class schedules.

  • Get to know your way around campus
  • Attend helpful sessions on campus resources
  • Learn more about living on campus or commuting
  • Meet new students, faculty, and staff
  • Pick up your Student ID Card
  • Meet with an Academic Advisor and plan your first semester class schedule

Transfer Guest Orientation:

We offer an optional guest experience for Transfer Orientation. Students will spend the morning with their guests, then split off into separate experiences starting at lunchtime. While students are creating their class schedules, guests can attend informational presentations and explore campus.
