Transfer Students

Registration Tutorial for Transfer Students

Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences!

Transferring to a new university can be an exciting but daunting process. The College website and advising system will help you to make this transition as smoothly as possible.

As soon as you commit to coming to Penn, you should take a look at the Transfer Student Checklist (below) and start working on the items in the list.

You will be assigned an advisor in the College Office with whom you can speak about transferring credit, registering for the fall, and any other academic issues. Please note that this advisor assignment may not be completed until Monday, June 5. At that point you will receive a welcome email from the College with the name of your advisor.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the General Education Curriculum and the policies and procedures you will be responsible for meeting. We also encourage you to take full advantage of the network of support services available to students in the College.
