Transfer Summer Orientation Registration and Things to Know

Before you make your reservation for Transfer Student Orientation, be sure you....

  1. Have paid your college deposit to Geneseo. 
  2. Have your deposit confirmation letter from the Admissions Office and have affirmed the Student Code of Conduct.
  3. Have your Geneseo e-mail username and password (provided via KnightWeb after the Code of Conduct is affirmed).
  4. Know which family members or guests will be attending orientation with you and whether they will be eating meals on campus.

Orientation Costs

The transfer orientation fee of $75 includes materials, programs, advising and lunch. You will be asked to indicate your preference of transfer dates. Attendance at each session is limited so you are encouraged to register early. 

Because transfer orientation begins early in the morning, some students may choose to arrive the evening before. Those signing up for “Early Arrival” will be assigned a room in a residence hall.  Early arrivals should plan to arrive to campus between 5pm-10pm.  The fee for early arrival is $10 per student.  

Transfer Student Orientation Fee $75.00 per student
Early Arrival Student $10.00 per student
Family Member Orientation Fee $20.00 per family
Guest Meals $10.00 per person
Early Arrival Family  $20.00 per room 

If you cannot or do not attend orientation, your class schedule will be assigned by the Dean of the College after all students who attend orientation have been registered.
