Transfer Student Orientation

Prepare for Orientation!

After you submit your enrollment deposit securing your space for the upcoming term, you can begin reserving your spot at the Transfer Student Orientation events. We have created a program that recognizes your prior college experience and introduces you to the most important topics and resources you will need to succeed at Bradley University. 

1. Finalize your admission

2. Review Instructions for Orientation

3. Schedule an advising appointment 

You must meet with your academic advisor over the phone, email, or in-person before you can register for classes. You should contact your advisor as soon as possible after you have paid your enrollment deposit. 

Note: your advisor will have limited access to your transfer credits  and academic information until 24 hours after you have paid your deposit. Submit your deposit early to ensure you have the best advising experience!

4. Register for classes

Most new transfer students will register for classes at the Transfer Registration Days, but this is only available in April (for fall/summer orientation) and November (for spring orientation). We strongly recommend attending one of our registration-based orientation events. 

If you are unable to attend a registration-based orientation event, visit this page for assistance with registration.

5. Obtain your QuickCard (Bradley ID Card)

6. Purchase textbooks

7. Get involved!
