Transfer Orientation

Welcome, Transfer Students! We're excited that you chose Lamar University, and we're looking forward to meeting you at your Orientation.

Transfer Orientation is offered to acclimate students coming from other institutions and first-time adult students to the unique culture and operations of Lamar University.

Transfer and adult students are strongly encouraged to attend a session. However, we understand that obligations and busy schedules may prevent attendance. So, Transfer Orientation is not mandatory.


To cancel your Orientation session, you must notify the New Student and Leadership Office ONE WEEK in advance. Students and parent/family members who do not notify the New Student and Leadership Office by the cancellation date, and do not reschedule to another session, will forfeit their Orientation fees.
