Transfer Student Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to Wheelock College!

Wheelock College is committed to providing a smooth and supportive transfer experience for our new students. We enroll transfer students from a wide range of two and four year colleges, but all of these students share Wheelock's mission to improve the lives of children and families. Wheelock's size means that you'll experience small classes and will be able to easily interact with your professors. We encourage you to become part of this close-knit community as you adjust to a new environment.

Transfer Advising Day

Transfer Advising Day is a one-day advising and registration program designed to prepare new students for their transition to Wheelock College.

Whether you are transferring after one semester or a few years, Transfer Advising Day will provide you with valuable information that will help you become better acquainted with our campus, community, academic programs, and the resources available to you.

At Transfer Advising Day you can expect to:

  • Become familiar with college programs and resources
  • Attend workshops that will prepare you to begin your Wheelock College journey
  • Learn about the academic opportunities at Wheelock College and declare your major(s)
  • Meet with an academic advisor, discuss your transfer credit, create your schedule, and register for fall courses
  • Connect with other transfer students

Your Next Steps:

  • If you haven't already done so, you need to inform Admissions of your plans to attend Wheelock College by returning your enrollment paperwork and deposit.
  • Once your deposit is received, you will receive information about registering for Transfer Advising Day.
  • If you have taken courses in the Spring 2017 semester and want the credits transferred over, please send your official transcripts to the Admissions Office before Transfer Advising Day.
