Transfer Students

New Student Transfer Orientation

As a transfer student, we understand that your needs are quite different that those of a beginning freshman. In order to serve our transfer students better, we have decided to hold a separate orientation just for you!

Registration Process

The registration process for all transfer students will follow the same format as any other student. You can register online by completing the registration form on the Register Here page or by calling our office at 219-989-2358.

New Student Transfer Orientation Dates

The first transfer student orientation date that will be open and available for registration is:

  • Friday, June 20th (4:00pm – 7:30pm)
  • Saturday, August 9th (8:30am – 12:00pm)

To better assist you with making sure you can secure classes, you can contact your academic advisor at any moment prior to attending orientation. We highly recommend that you get in contact with your academic advisor as soon as possible due to the high demand for classes. If you do not know your academic advisor, please contact our office at 219-989-4160 to get the name and contact of your advisor.

Payment Information

There is a required $30 non-refundable fee for attending orientation. This fee cannot be waived. It is required that you pay for orientation fee prior to attending orientation. Failure to do so will result in a financial hold placed on your student record preventing registration. Visit our Payment Information page for more information.

Math Placement Exam

Although you are a transfer student, some credits do not transfer over to Purdue University Calumet. If you do not have any transferrable math credits, it is recommended that you complete the Math Placement exam.
