Orientation students

Transfer Orientation (Summer)

The president, deans, faculty and staff of Notre Dame de Namur University invite you to attend one of four transfer orientations during the summer

NDNU Transfer Day provides you with:

  • Early, on-site advising and registration for classes if needed
  • An overview of academic requirements and the Core Curriculum program
  • Information about your major and assistance from a faculty advisor in planning your class schedule
  • Knowledgeable students and staff to answer your questions about college life and campus resources
  • An opportunity to meet and converse with other New Argos and current NDNU students
  • Sessions to learn about your NDNU email and student account, as well as ways to get involved at your new campus

Orientation Sessions (Summer)

Each Orientation session is one full day beginning at 10:00 a.m. (check-in at 9:45) and ending at 4:30 p.m. The program is designed to prepare you for registration and to help you learn what to expect from NDNU. The information and assistance available to you make Orientation the best source of information about Notre Dame de Namur University.
