Transfer Orientation
Transfer Student Orientation is divided into two components — online and in-person. All transfer students are required to complete both components of orientation.

The online orientation will take approximately 30 minutes to complete and addresses the following topics: academic advising, transfer credit evaluation, degree evaluation, registering for classes, financial aid and tuition. 

Get started by activating your OU accounts.

If you have trouble activating these accounts, contact us at (248) 370-GOLD.

Once your accounts are activated, you can begin Part One of your Transfer Student Orientation. We recommend using Mozilla Firefox for the online orientation.
