Transfer Student Orientation

Welcome New Bradley Students!

We understand that transfer students come to us with experience navigating the college/university environment. It is important for students to understand that each institution is different, however. To assist you in your transition to Bradley, we are pleased to provide you with a short but comprehensive Transfer Student Orientation program.

Attendance at Orientation is only available to transfer students who have made their enrollment deposit.  Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 309-677-1000 for instructions on how to make your deposit.
