Welcome Transfer Students!

Transfer Student Advising and Course Registration

Our Professional Advisors are excited to welcome you as our newest Southern Owls!

  • SUMMER 2019:  March 20th - August 7th. (Please note registration dates for specific summer sessions.)
  • FALL 2019:  April 22nd - August 23rd. 

Within three business days of paying your full-time admission deposit or accepting your part-time admission, an invitation with instructions on how to schedule an appointment with a Professional Advisor will be sent to your Southern email.  To maximize course selection, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment as soon as possible.  Your financial aid does not have to be awarded in order for you to register for courses.

Professional Advisors will review how your credits have transferred into the University, show you how they apply to your selected major and discuss course options for the fall. You will register for courses, receive a student id and parking decal, on the day of your advising appointment.

If you have any questions, please contact the Advising Office or at (203) 392-5367.
