Admitted Transfer Student Guides

Next Steps

Congratulations on your admission to the University of Dayton! The following list includes items you should expect to complete in the coming weeks and months, prior to transfer student orientation.

  • Visit Campus (if you have not done so already)
    o   Meet with an admission and financial aid counselor
    o   Tour the campus
    o   Meet with an academic representative
  • File the FAFSA (if you have not done so already)
  • Review your financial aid offer
  • Confirm enrollment
    o   Accept Offer of Admission via Admission Account
    o   Pay $400 deposit (if applicable)
  • Set up and activate your official UD Account
  • Access Porches to complete your to-do list
    o   Complete financial aid requirements
    o   Accept or decline your financial aid
    o   Complete Health Requirement Form
    o   Complete Housing and Meal Plan Form or Commuter Form
    o   Upload Flyer Card photo
    o   Register for Transfer Student Orientation 
    o   Complete AlcoholEdu, Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates (SAPU), and UDiversity
  • Activate UD email account (once you are in Porches)
  • Contact and meet with your academic advisor to register for courses (prior to Transfer Student Orientation, contact information available in Porches)
  • Contact the Department of Global Languages and Cultures to schedule your language placement exam (if you need to take a foreign language course for your major/minor)
  • Send in your final college transcript(s) (prior to the start of the new semester)
  • Contact the Disability Services to transfer your IEP from the previous school (if applicable)

Don’t be afraid of putting yourself out there. Joining a club is the perfect way to meet people on campus early into the semester, so I would recommend any transfer students to check out the Up the Orgs.
