Transfer Orientation

Welcome to Louisiana State University. You will be joining thousands of transfer students who call LSU home, and we want to make your transition from your previous institution a pleasant one. We are aware of the hard work and preparation you have expended and hope your transition and journey here will be enjoyable, exciting, and rewarding.  Orientation is required of all new transfer students, even if you have already spoken with an advisor at LSU.
