Transfer Student Orientation

Welcome, we are looking 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. In order 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 the TSP Bear Notes (our online/virtual orientation) outlining Transfer Orientation. Each Bear Note link will provide information on a required activity and/or segment of the orientation, and some will be embedded with videos. Admitted transfer students must complete each and every part of the Transfer Student Orientation process before meeting with a college/school transfer coordinator. All new transfer students have a "Transfer Student Programming Hold" which prevents registration for classes. Transfer Student Programming Holds will be lifted once students have met with their assigned transfer coordinator for advisement and registration assistance.

The Fall 2022 semester begins on August 22, 2022. 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 2022 courses online on the following dates:
