Transfer Days

Transfer Days is designed specifically for students transferring from other colleges and universities. This focused, half-day experience connects you with what you want and need as an experienced college student. You will:

  • Meet with a professional Academic Advisor to solidify your course schedule, address questions related to your degree program, and learn about the policies that affect you most.
  • Speak with a Career Coach to learn specific resources and steps you should take in order to make the most of your degree.
  • Discuss with a Financial Aid Counselor more about your situation, good financial stewardship, and minimizing student debt.
  • Receive a realistic peer perspective of campus, its resources, and how to succeed at Regent.

Frequently Asked Questions

We highly encourage students who will be transferring to Regent and taking classes on campus to attend. We have developed this orientation with you in mind, with your peers as contributors, and with research and best practice at its core.

Your registration helps us tremendously in preparing a nice experience for you! You will experience the event with a small group of students before and after your individual appointments with Career Coaches and Academic Advisors. Since individual appointments form the foundation of the event, students who arrive without registering will not be able to participate.

Students should take care to complete the following before attending:

  1. Ensure that you can login into the MyRegent system with your user name and own password—this is very important. You have received instructions in an email from our IT department. Contact the Help Desk at 757.352.4076 for assistance.
  2. Complete the pre-transfer inventory. 
  3. Bring all of your transcripts, which were not submitted previously with the admissions application, to your Academic Advising appointment. Click here for information on submitting official transcript(s) from other institutions you have attended previously.
  4. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (www.fafsa.ed.gov).
  5. Review and complete unsatisfied financial aid requirements. Login to your Genisys account (http://my.regent.edu). From the Genisys Main Menu select the links for: Financial Aid > Eligibility > Financial Aid Requirements > Select Aid Year 2014-2015

Upon arrival (see directions), you may park in Lot L (see map) and then check-in at the Welcome Center (#7 on map) up to 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled start time. Attire is casual and wear comfortable walking shoes. Prepare accordingly for any inclement weather, as you will be walking around campus on a tour and in between buildings.
