Transfer Student Orientation

In accordance with the state and institution’s guidelines during this time, Buff Nation: A Buff Branding and Orientation Event will be moved to a virtual format this year. Students who are not yet registered for NSO need to go ahead and register to attend the August Option. We will be communicating next steps to students registered for orientation. As a reminder, Orientation is still required for all incoming students.

Welcome Transfer Students

Congratulations on your admission to WTAMU! One of your first steps toward a successful transition to WT is to complete orientation. Due to COVID-19, we do not have any in-person options available for transfer students starting in the Fall. Please scroll down to the online option to complete orientation.

Who is Considered a Transfer Student?

A transfer student is defined as a student who was previously enrolled in a university or college and received a minimum of twelve academic hours after high school graduation- dual credit coursework does not qualify. If you do not meet these requirements for a transfer student, review New Student Orientation.

Orientation is REQUIRED for all transfer students.  You may choose to attend an in-person TSO or complete the online orientation.
