Welcome to Duke University!

As a member of the Transfer Class, you are about to begin the journey of Duke University undergraduate education at Duke. The Transfer Orientation program is your key to a successful start as one of the newest members of our community. It is designed to introduce you to many of the academic and co-curricular opportunities that Duke has to offer!

Transfer Orientation Welcome Week 2019 will take place Tuesday, August 20, 2019 - Sunday, August 25, 2019. The complete Transfer Student Orientation Welcome Week 2019 schedule will be available later this summer. 

We also encourage you to find out more about the Transfer Advisory Counselors (TAC) program. TACs provide all incoming transfer students with an upperclass peer mentor. The TAC is your personal guide to life at Duke, from an expert who has recently experienced it!
