Transfer Student Guides

A Place to Call Home

The University of Dayton is a special place for all students, faculty, staff, and alumni.  As a new transfer student, there are many ways you can experience that connection before you even start at UD.

Here are some examples that helped other transfer students in making the connection and decision to attend UD:

  • Visit and tour campus - this is an opportunity to feel the campus vibe in person, meet and talk to current students, meet with faculty from your major, and touch base with your transfer admission and financial aid counselor; if you are unable to visit in person, take a virtual tour.
  • Talk to relatives, neighbors, or friends who are currently attending or who have graduated from UD.
  • Make a list of personal values and qualities you are looking for in a university.  Then, visit and experience the campus.
  • Call or email Undergraduate Admissions and speak to an admission and financial aid counselor about your transfer options.
  • Actively explore program offerings, degree requirements, and transfer information on the UD website.
  • Consider joining a student organization like U(D) Belong for transfer students, sport clubs, or volunteer activities at UD.
  • Make a visit to UD on an Up-the-Orgs day.
  • Walk around the student neighborhood to feel the sense of pride our students have in our strong community.
  • Connect with academic and student support services, such as career servicescounseling center, campus recreation, health center, disability services, learning services, and Flyer Student Services.
