Transfer Student Orientation Program

Tuesday, August 18th, 2020


We would like to invite you to our one-day comprehensive orientation program in August. We feel it is important for transfer students to have the opportunity to learn about campus resources, offices, departments, as well as make connections with other students prior to the school year starting. 

Below is a preview of topics covered during the program!

  • Welcome to Westfield State Session
  • Connecting with other Transfer Students
  • Student Life
  • Academic Student Support Services
  • Campus Tour
  • Advising and Registration Appointments Available

Check-in for this program will take place from 8:15 a.m. - 8:45 a.m.. Our first session will begin promptly at 8:45 a.m. and we will have a schedule of sessions running until 4:00 p.m.. Please plan to attend the entire day.

Do you have a Champion that is planning to attend? We will be happy to welcome them as part of the program. However, there is a $25 fee for any guest that you bring and this should be paid when you register for the program. This fee covers lunch and materials for the program. Please refrain from bringing friends or younger siblings, the program is a time for you and your support crew to connect with campus.

All transfer students will receive information in June about how to register for our program. 

Let's Go Virtual!

We are excited to announce that we have a new online module that students can watch to prepare them for life at Westfield State. We know as  transfer students that you have already experienced college at another isitution, so this online orientation will provide you with the basics of Westfield, so you know what we have to offer. Then, when you come in August, you can focus on meeting other students, asking last minute questions, connecting with staff, and takign care of business. 

The online module will be emailed to you when you register for the in-person program over the summer.
