Transfer Student Orientation

The Transfer Student Orientation program is designed to facilitate a smooth transition to campus life and prepare you for an exciting first semester. For Summer 2024, we are offering two in-person orientations on Saturday, July 13, 2024, and Friday, July 26, 2024.

Orientation provides a valuable opportunity to hear from staff and administrators, connect with current students and fellow incoming transfers, and discover what it takes to thrive as a student at UC Merced.

We are excited to welcome you to our community. Orientation marks your first step in understanding the resources and building the relationships that will contribute to your success at UC Merced and beyond.
