Transfer Orientation


TRANSformation Orientation
If you have more than 15 college-level credits from a regionally accredited school, you are considered a transfer student for admissions purposes and are encouraged to attend any New Student Orientation (NSO) including the specific transfer orientation program. If you have less than 15 college-level credits, than you are considered a freshman transfer student and must follow the guidelines for our freshman orientation program.

As a transfer student, your first step after being accepted to the university is to see an academic advisor and register for classes. The Academic Advising Center will assist you with course approvals. Once you have seen an academic advisor and been approved for courses, you can register classes using student e-services (MY UHD) at

After you have completed academic advising and registration, we highly encourage you to participate in our Transformation Orientation Sessions. Since every university is different, it is important to learn valuable information about the university that will help acquaint you with your new campus home.

As a transfer student, you can also take advantage of a few other programs and resources that can also help you along your way!

UHD Campus Tours
The Office of Admissions offers campus tours regularly during normal business hours. To schedule a general campus tour, visit the Office of Admissions campus tour page or contact the office by phone.


Transfer Student Admitted Day

Transfer Student Admitted Day is your one-stop shop to all your enrollment needs. By the end of your visit you will have satisfied you BMV requirements, participated in an academic advising session, registered for your classes, receive financial aid counseling, as well as have experienced UHD by meeting current students, touring the campus and making a connection with your new campus community.


WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO ATTEND A TRANSFER ADMITTED STUDENT DAY BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN ANY TRANSFORMATION ORIENTATION SESSIONS. For information on Transfer Admitted Student Day, please contact the Office of Admissions at (713) 221-8522.

Quick Orientation Tours

If you prefer to review the services we cover in our Transformation Orientation Sessions online (coming soon), we encourage you to view the quick orientation tour presentation. It will summarize the most widely used student services as well as touch on other important that may help you prepare for your first semester at UHD.



We understands the demands and challenges of transfer students, however, we encourage attending the Transfer Orientation or any of the other New Student Orientation dates. We want to ensure that we set you up for success at UHD and our Orientation sessions will be an important step in your UHD success.


If you need further assistance once you start classes or encounter any barriers or issues, please contact the Office of New Student Orientation at (713) 221-8022 for immediate assistance or stop by S204 and ask for the Orientation office.
