Transfer Student Orientation

We look forward to you joining the Morgan State University family. All newly admitted MSU transfer students will participate in Transfer Student Orientation where they will receive information pertinent to their unique and collective onboarding needs. The Office of Transfer Student Programming (TSP) will send information regarding orientation to your Morgan email address. To ensure that you begin your Morgan experience prepared and informed about all of the opportunities and possibilities available to you as a Morgan student, the TSP team has planned for you to participate in Transfer Student Orientation.

All transfer students who have been officially admitted to the University will receive an email linking to Virtual Transfer Orientation in Canvas. You will use your MSU login to access the Transfer Orientation course. Each course module will provide information on a required activity and/or segment of the orientation and direct you to helpful campus resources.

All new transfer students have a "Transfer Student Programming Hold" which prevents class registration. This is an advising hold to ensure you meet with your school's designated transfer coordinator BEFORE you register for your classes. Your transfer coordinator will remove the hold on your account during or immediately after your advising appointment.

The fall 2023 semester begins on August 21, 2023. New transfer students must submit all transcripts from previously attended institutions to All transcripts must be evaluated before registration. After meeting with a college/school transfer coordinator, students will be able to register for Fall 2023 courses online on the following dates:
