Transfer and Non-Traditional Orientation

If you have 14 or more transferable credits and/or are beginning a college career at age 21 or older, New Student Orientation for Transfer & Non-Traditional students is for you.

New Student Orientation for Transfer & Non-Traditional students is a half-day program that will help you get ready for your future at Boise State. We understand that you may be juggling extra responsibilities such as work, family or military service, so this program aims to meet your social and academic needs in a short but full timeframe. All new students are expected to attend an Orientation before registering for classes.

We’re all about giving you a head start on college. At Orientation you can expect to:

  • Receive academic advising
  • Register for classes
  • Receive your Bronco ID Card
  • Meet other new students and Orientation Leaders

Can I bring my family?

Yes! We’ve created Family Orientation especially for your family; however, the content and duration may not be suitable for children or young teens. You may bring up to 4 family members with you. Family Orientation has additional costs for each family member. See our Family Orientation Dates and Cost page.
