Admitted Transfer Students

Welcome transfer students! We get it—you already know the ropes and understand what it’s like to be a college student. Still, every campus is different, and we want to make sure you receive any support you need during your transition to Hamline.

Our staff is here to help you navigate a new campus with new policies, procedures, and culture. We can answer questions about your transfer credits, financial aid, academic advising, and help you jump into life at Hamline.

Your orientation session

There is a mandatory one-day orientation session for transfer students that occurs before fall term for those starting in the fall and another in January for those starting in the spring. At orientation, your New Student Mentors will welcome you to campus and give you the rundown on Hamline 101.

During the program, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about campus and student support services
  • Meet with faculty and staff
  • Connect with other new Hamline students
  • Receive your student ID, textbooks, and other materials
  • Learn about academic expectations and advising
  • Discover campus life outside the classroom

Spring 2023 Orientation

Spring orientation will take place on Friday, January 20 for transfer students starting classes in spring 2023. Further information will be sent to your Hamline email address as the date approaches. 

Orientation registration

No need to sign up—when you register for classes, you're automatically signed up to attend this event.
