Transfer Student Orientation

    Welcome, transfer students!

    We're excited you're joining our Warrior community this year! We have both virtual and in-person, on-campus ways to fulfill your orientation requirement.

    We understand that you have experience at a different college or university, but we want to make sure you get to know the Wayne State systems and people who can help you be successful.

    If you are an incoming first-year student, please visit our First-Year Student Orientation page.

    Below you will find two different ways to fulfill your orientation requirement:

    "Online" means that the orientation program will be offered virtually through Zoom.

    "United States - Michigan" means that the orientation program is offered in person on Wayne State's midtown Detroit campus. You'll really have the full experience of what it's like to be a Wayne State student when you choose this option.

    Regardless of the type of program you choose to attend, you will be added to the Canvas Orientation course that is filled with really great information.  

    Important note about logging in to schedule your orientation session

    Use the log in information you created when you submitted your application to Wayne State to reserve your orientation experience. This is most likely your personal email account coupled with a password that you created. DO NOT use your Academica account credentials to log in - it won't work.

    Please reach out to us if you have any questions - we're happy to help! Our email address is and our office phone number is 313-577-9019. See you soon!
