Transfer Students: Prepare

To make sure you’re ready for orientation, we recommend that you do the following when preparing for orientation:

  1. Make sure you sign up for an orientation program.
  2. Bring your orientation confirmation with you to orientation. This includes directions, parking information and your parking pass for the day.
  3. Bring a state-issued photo ID card (i.e. driver's license) with you to orientation. You will not be able to get your Viking ID card (VikingCard) without it.
  4. Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress weather appropriate (both students and family).
  5. Bring a positive, energetic GO VIKINGS outlook attitude!
