Transfer Student Preview

Congratulations on your decision to transfer to the University of Mount Union! We understand that making that decision isn’t always easy, so we’re glad you’ve chosen Mount Union to complete your academic career. As a transfer student, you bring a great deal of knowledge and experience to your transition to Mount Union, and in an effort to keep you on a path to success, we require all transfer students to attend a Transfer Student Preview.

We understand that you are already familiar with college life, which is why we’ve designed a one-day orientation session that is tailored to your needs and provides you with all the need-to-know information about Mount Union. The mandatory, free orientation, which will give you a chance to get more familiar with campus, will be held on Thursday, August 27. Please see the detailed schedule below for more information.

Transfer Student Preview Schedule

Keep in mind that prior to attending Transfer Student Preview, Marci Muckleroy, director of students in academic transition, will create a course schedule designed to fit your academic interests. He will be your advisor during your first semester and serve as a resource for you as you transition into becoming a Purple Raider.

When you attend Transfer Student Preview, you’ll learn about:

  • Mount Union’s academic requirements
  • living on campus or commuting to college
  • campus technology (email, learning management system, network hard drive, etc.)
  • scheduling classes
  • tuition bills and payment

You’ll also have your photo taken for your Purple Plu$ card, your official Mount Union identification card and key to campus life. This card will serve as your meal and library card, give you access into residence halls and can be used to purchase products and services at approved off-campus vendors. Although there are only a select number of sessions taking place during Transfer Student Preview, offices and departments will be open to answer any questions you may have and help you navigate your next steps on campus. Feel free to make an appointment or stop by.
