New Student Orientation

Transfer Success Series

Welcome to American University! We are glad you have decided to join our community. We know transfer students come to campus with previous experiences, specific interests, and differing concerns compared to first year students. This lead to the creation of the Transfer Success Series (TSS) - a completely online email series designed to introduce you to the unique campus resources and opportunities available at American University. Over the course of the semester you will get information on relevant topics (i.e. study skills, stress and time management), campus resources (i.e. Career Services, Student Activities, Academic Support & Access Center), and campus events (i.e. Involvement Fair, Job & Internship Fair) all designed to help your transition to AU be as smooth as possible. Questions, issues, or concerns but not sure who to turn to - contact your School or College rep listed below.

We also invite you to join us for a beginning of the semester reception where you will meet returning transfer students, other newly transferring students, and staff from across the university.
