TRANSFER & READMITTED STUDENTS
Transfer students may choose to attend one of the sessions listed below. All sessions are identical. The decision of which session to attend should be based on family vacations and work schedules. Reservations for each of the sessions are taken in the order that they are received. While we will try to accommodate your first choice of sessions, there is limited space available per session. To ensure complete confidentiality of the materials created specifically for you, please bring your ID with you to A&R.
A&R is designed specifically to help you make a smooth transition from a previous college or university, or as you return to Shepherd. Your day will include a transcript evaluation, a meeting with an academic advisor to plan your schedule, and registration for classes. Please make arrangements with family and work obligations in order to be on campus the entire day as this session is typically a full day program.
What to Bring:
- Photo ID
- Required Health Forms
- Pencils and Paper
- Cell Phone
- Jackets or sweaters (meeting rooms may be cold)
- Comfortable walking shoes
- To purchase a Parking Permit:
- Driver’s License
- Vehicle Registration for primary car that will be used on campus
- Readmitted students should bring a copy of your Shepherd catalog if you have been away less than two consecutive semesters. This is the catalog that was given to you during your first admittance to Shepherd University.
- Transfer students who were enrolled in coursework for the fall 2013 semester or quarter at your previous institution should request that an official transcript be sent to the Office of Admissions at Shepherd University as soon as possible. If you have not yet submitted official transcripts from all previous institutions, please do so as soon as possible for an accurate evaluation of your coursework. If your official transcript does not reflect your fall 2013 coursework, please bring unofficial copies to review with your academic advisor. Note that part of the registration process includes a transcript evaluation.
How long will Advisement & Registration last?
- The time it takes to be advised and to register for classes will vary depending on your major, time spent in academic advisement, and the number of students participating in the program. To ensure you are able to complete the entire program, plan to be on campus until 4:00 pm.
