Students Walking on Campus

Transfer Orientation

To prepare you transition to studies here at St. John’s, we hold a special Orientation designed just for you.

New Student Guide Checklist

This summer, before you arrive to campus, you will complete Online Orientation modules that will help familiarize you with campus resources and introduce you to student life. Next, you will join us on-campus for your Orientation Connection Day, where you will learn how to find your way around campus, and have a chance to meet fellow transfer students and current student leaders who will welcome you as a new member of our community. This is also an opportunity to establish  relationships with your academic advisors, and many University departments. Students will be issued their StormCard (University ID) during Orientation.

Registration for Orientation Connection Days will be available for students who have accepted their admission and will be announced via email soon. Please note that in order to register for Orientation, you must have paid your deposit. View the New Student Guide Checklist for deposit deadline and other important information.

The transfer student orientation connection day sessions are below:

  • Tuesday, August 10
  • Thursday, August 26 (vaccination required prior)

COVID testing will be provided on-site on Orientation Connection Days free of charge. Students who are not already vaccinated will be required to be tested. Additional information will be provided to students and their families as their Connection Day approaches regarding testing, vaccination documentation requirements, and safety protocols.

If you are met with a capacity cap and are unable to register for your desired session, please contact the Orientation team at [email protected]. In-person sessions are capped at lower levels this year for social distancing.

We look forward to meeting you and all of the newest members of the St. John's family, and sharing what’s to come during your fall semester.
