Winter Transfer Student Orientation- Friday, January 3, 2014
All winter term transfer students are required to attend Orientation on Friday, January 3, 2014. After you accept your enrollment at Santa Clara, you will be contacted by the Office of New Student Programs to reserve your space for the session. At orientation you will register for classes, learn about our academic and campus programs, and find out how you can get involved with the Santa Clara community.
All transfer students are charged a one-time $130 program fee, which covers the costs of Transfer Orientation. This fee covers meals, materials, publications, activities, and administrative costs. The charge will be made to your student account shortly after orientation. We do not provide an official parent program as part of Winter Orientation. If you parents are interested in attending, they can attend the morning welcome and enjoy coffee with administrators from 9:00am-10:00am. Administrators will be able to answer questions parents may have.
