Transfer Students

We're so excited that you've decided to join Roger Williams University! If you have paid your deposit to Admissions and are a transfer student from another institution you are required to attend our one-day Transfer Orientation session. Transfer students who have less than 24 credits transferring into RWU will need to attend the First Year Students Orientation and should visit that tab. Questions regarding Transfer Students and their Orientation session, can speak with Carol Sacchetti, Director of New Student Orientation at (401) 254-3385.

Attending our program will allow both students and families the opportunity to become more familiar with our campus. We know that you are coming from another institution, but each college is different and it is important that you learn the "new" policy and procedures here at Roger Williams University. Check-in begins at 8:30am in Global Heritage Hall, and our program will conclude no earlier than 4:00pm

Our one-day session will be on Tuesday, June 25, 2019
