Transfer Orientation

Entering transfer students must attend Transfer Orientation where you will receive information pertinent to your unique and collective needs, meet your major advisor, and register for classes.  You may bring family members with you; however, we caution you that this is a day-long event which may be difficult for children and older guests.  You may register HERE using your Morgan e-mail address.  You may also contact the Office of Transfer Student Programming (TSP) at 443-885-3711 or by e-mail at TSP@morgan.edu to register for the session of your choice.  You may register to attend orientation when:

  • you have completed the admissions process;
  • you have been admitted to the University; and
  • you have tendered the confirmation fee ($150 deposit).

Orientations for 2017 will be held in the University Student Center as follows:

 Spring 2018 semester: 

  • Friday, January 12, 2018.  (Open to all newly admitted transfer students AND newly admitted freshmen)  Location:  Calvin & Tina Tyler Ballroom B-C, University Student Center (2nd floor)

Register Below

Course registration is open to transfer students only on orientation days.  Transfer orientation dates fill up rapidly.  Do not wait until the last minute to register.  Meeting with your advisor before selecting classes is mandatory.   All transfer students attending orientation will be advised in their major departments and will have the opportunity to register for classes.  

Be certain you have submitted the final transcript from your former school in order to avoid registering for courses you have already taken and satisfactorily completed.  If you complete a course at Morgan for which you have already received a passing grade from a former school and you receive a lower grade at Morgan, the Morgan grade will prevail on your transcript.  Also, failure to submit all transcripts from all institutions you have attended previously to the Office of Undergraduate Admission and Recruitment may be grounds for dismissal.  Make certain your paperwork is complete!

Finally, be certain to also submit as quickly as possible for evaluation all alternative credits you have completed successfully; i.e., Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and CLEP examination credits.
