New Students

Transfer Orientation

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 2018 will take place Tuesday, August 21, 2018 - Sunday, August 26, 2018. The complete Transfer Student Orientation Welcome Week 2018 schedule will be available late Spring 2018. 

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!


If you require any specific accommodations to participate in Transfer Student Orientation, please contact the Student Disability Access Office or the Office of New Student Programs at 919-684-3511.
