Transfer Orientation

Welcome Weekend - your orientation to Notre Dame.

Fall Transfers

Enrolling fall transfer students and their parents are welcomed to the Notre Dame community through a comprehensive Transfer Welcome program. The Transfer Welcome Committee is comprised of current Notre Dame students, and the program addresses the specific needs and concerns of newly enrolling sophomores and juniors. 

Welcome Weekend begins with a Mass and dinner, including an address from the University’s President, Rev. John Jenkins, C.S.C. The weekend schedule includes informational meetings, academic advising, course registration, and community-building social events.

Spring Transfers

Enrolling spring transfers and their parents will be invited to an evening spring Transfer Welcome program, including a dinner and student panel. Academic advising and course registration take place the following morning. Although the academic schedule in January necessitates an abbreviated program, the Transfer Welcome Committee organizes social events throughout the first week of classes to help ensure transfer students feel part of the Notre Dame family.
