Transfer Student Orientation Overview
Welcome to the Kean community! All incoming transfer students are required to attend Transfer Student Orientation (TSO). Here you will receive the necessary tools for a successful first year at Kean University. Additionally, you will learn about campus support services and student life from a panel of current transfer students.
Fall 2021 Transfer Student Orientation sessions will be held in August 2021. Additional details and sign-up will become available in July 2021. New transfer students will receive additional information via email informing them of Transfer Student Orientation, along with a link to sign-up, by July 31.
Please note that participation in Orientation is mandatory for all new students.
- If you require accessibility accommodations, notify the Office of Accessibility Services two weeks prior to your orientation session.
Students will also automatically be enrolled in a Blackboard class following Transfer Student Orientation which will provide them with videos from the day’s program to use as an at-will resource. This course will also have a resource folder with everything that a Kean student might need to know to succeed during their first semester.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to the Orientation Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessibility Services is here to provide assistance and accommodations for all students with physical, medical, learning, emotional and/or psychological documented disabilities both temporary and permanent. Any student requiring an accommodation due to a disability needs to contact the Office of Accessibility Services two weeks prior to their selected NSO session. Office of Accessibility Services can be reached at (908) 737-4910 or email@example.com.
