Transfer/Adult Orientation

A transfer student is a student who has attended an institution of higher learning other than UofL (not including dual credit completed during high school). An adult student is a student who has not previously attended a college or university, and graduated high school more than two years ago.

Orientation Registration for Summer/Fall 2018 transfer students will open on February 20th @ 3 pm EST.
