Transfer Orientation

Summer/Fall 2024 students will receive orientation invitatations via email starting February 1, 2024.

Transfer Student Orientation is an online experience designed to meet the needs of students transferring to Minnesota State University, Mankato. As a transfer student, you will be enrolled into online modules where you will receive valuable information from various campus offices and departments.  During your scheduled Zoom orientation session, you will learn more about the academic requirements of the university and meet advising staff.  After the scheduled Zoom session, you will schedule an additional meeting with your academic advisor to complete advising and registration.  These staff members will help you with the transition to Minnesota State University, Mankato. 

You will also have the opportunity to register for an optional Virtual Connection Lab.  These connection labs are facilitated by student leaders on campus who will meet with transfer students over Zoom to answer questions and connect you with other incoming transfer students.  These hour long sessions are a great way to meet others and get more familiar with campus from the comfort of your own home.
