Transfer Orientation

Register for Orientation

We are excited to have you join our University community. Orientation provides you with the information you need to make the most of your Rowan experience.

Transfer Orientation includes four components: 

  1. New Student Checklist: Your New Student Checklist is your key to a successful transition to Rowan. Please make sure that you are completing all items on the checklist and make note of any dates and deadlines. 
  2. Advising & Class Registration: Transfer students are eligible to register for fall semester classes prior to attending our Day on Campus. Schedule an appointment with your advisor through RSN. You can find information about registering for classes and advisor contact information on our website
  3. Online Orientation: All students will be registered for our Online Orientation program in Canvas by early-June. Our online orientation program is designed to introduce you to our Rowan Thrive initiative. We will walk you through each of the six dimensions of well-being. You will learn about the different offices and departments on campus that will help you achieve well-being as a Rowan student. Please note that all students must complete this program. If you do not complete the program, a hold will be placed on your account that will prevent you from registering for spring semester courses. 
  4. Welcome Week: Rowan has a tradition of welcoming all students back to campus before the start of each semester. During Welcome Week, you will find programs and activities to give you a taste of campus life and connect with current student leaders. Our website will have the most updated schedule - check back often throughout the summer as we update it with more events! 


Online Transfer Orientation 

All new students are required to complete orientation. If you previously attended Rowan and were accepted as a readmit, you are not required to complete orientation, but are encouraged to do so to learn about any policies that may have changed or new resources available to you.

Parent & Family Orientation

Due to the unforeseen circumstances with COVID-19, we had to move our Parent and Family Orientation online for this summer. While we would love nothing more than to welcome you and your family to campus, keeping you and your family safe is our biggest priority. Please rest assured that we have been working diligently to create an online orientation program that will provide you with a valuable orientation experience from your home.
