Transfer Orientation

Transfer Welcome Events & Orientation

Students at orientation

Congratulations! All your hard work and planning have paid off. We look forward to officially welcoming you to the LMU family at Orientation!

Below, please find a list of the events planned to aid you in your transition to LMU.  While we realize that you may have participated in an “orientation” at your previous institution, we hope you take this opportunity to engage your new home through the numerous offerings we PROVIDE our incoming transfer students.


Transfer BBQ (optional, but highly encouraged): Friday, July 21, 11:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Spend a casual afternoon getting to know your fellow transfer students and select faculty from your college over a classic American BBQ Lunch. This is also an opportunity to get answers to your most pressing questions regarding your enrollment at LMU. Check-in begins at 11:30 a.m. and the bbq will begin at noon. Directly following lunch we will have some information sessions, including a student panel, as well as an opportunity to take care of any lingering business at some key offices on campus (e.g., Financial Aid or the University bookstore).

This is a family affair, so bring the whole gang! 

Schedule of Events


Transfer Student Orientation (mandatory): Wednesday, August 23, 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Transfer Orientation is a day for you to meet other transfer students, get acquainted with staff and faculty, plan for your future with Career and Professional Development and understand the academic and co-curricular experience you are about to start.

Schedule of Events


Meet with your advisor (by appointment and if necessary): Thursday, August 24, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
