Summer Session Transfer Orientation

Summer Session Transfer Student Orientation is designed for new transfer students beginning their studies at UL Lafayette during the summer semester.  During Orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet with your college dean, meet with other incoming students, learn about important university resources, discuss the transfer credit articulation process, and, if needed, meet with an academic advisor in preparation of registering for classes.


Orientation Dates

Session Name Orientation Dates
Summer Session May 24, 2018

*Transfer students who schedule classes at Late Summer Session will incur a $50 late course registration fee that will be applied to their Tuition and Fees. Transfer students are encouraged to schedule classes before this date or attend and schedule classes at the May 24 orientation to avoid this late fee.


Orientation Registration

Orientation registration is not yet available. Orientation packets will be mailed to admitted students beginning in March, 2018.

Students who meet with their Academic Advisor BEFORE Orientation

Transfer Students will receive the name of their academic advisor in their Orientation packet.  We encourage Transfer Students to meet with their academic advisor to be cleared to register for classes before attending orientation. Once you meet with your academic advisor, you can then log into ULink to register for Orientation. You will need your university username and password (sent in your Orientation packet).

Students who wish to meet with their Academic Advisor DURING Orientation

Transfer Students wishing to meet with an academic advisor during Transfer Orientation should log into ULink to schedule their Orientation. You will need your university username and password (sent in your Orientation packet).  There is no need to call us to schedule advising as your advising appointment time is built into the orientation program.

Visit our helpful webpage for step-by-step orientation registration instructions.
