We are thrilled that you have chosen to continue your college career at RIT! Transfer students who participate in Orientation have two different tracks to choose from. We recommend that you choose Track One as it will provide more opportunities to connect with faculty, staff, and other new students to RIT. You are already eligible to attend once you make your Admissions deposit but you will need to select which track you would like to participate in during Orientation week.
Track One | August 20-25, 2019
All-access pass to the Transfer Orientation program, which is five days of events, activities, and sessions that will give you a thorough overview of RIT resources and services, interest sessions, opportunities to connect with students in your small group, fun evening entertainment, and much more. Students in this track will be placed in a small group with a trained Orientation Leader (OL). Your OL, an upper-class transfer student, will be an invaluable asset as you get acclimated to campus and prepare for the academic year. This person will be your guide during Orientation and your main point of contact for all questions and curiosities. This track may appeal to students who want a comprehensive, community-oriented experience, sufficient involvement with other new students, and small group activities.
Track Two | August 22, 2019
Do you just want to meet with your academic college and learn more about your academic program? Not interested in group activities and Orientation events? This track is for you. Track Two includes an overview and introduction to your academic college and program, and meeting with your academic advisor. You will need to check into your Transfer Orientation (Track Two) in the Gordon Field House on the Mezzanine level (second floor) at 7:30 a.m., as you will need to find your college to be seated with the Academic Day Overview beginning promptly at 8 a.m.
