Transfer Summer Welcome

Summer Welcome Registration will open February 19, 2018.

Summer Welcome is Mizzou’s advising, registration and orientation program for new students and parents who will be attending classes in the Fall. It is an interactive one day session that provides essential information sessions, introduces concepts of college culture, and assists students in navigating buildings, residential halls, dining services, and provides you with the opportunity to meet with an academic adviser from your intended major and complete your Fall course schedule.

Summer 2018 introduced a joint freshman and transfer student session. This will continue and be a traditional two-day orientation identical to the freshman summer welcome sessions, but open to those transfer students that may need more information than our one-day session offers.

Thirty-six knowledgeable and helpful orientation leaders will serve as hosts and share their experiences with new students. Administrators and faculty will also be present at sessions throughout the day to answer questions and give you advice about your educational future.
