Orientation - Transfer Students
Welcome to #RangerNation. Your Ranger experience starts here! As a Transfer student, we have different supports and opportunities in place for you to successfully complete your transition to Parkside.
You're almost there! Here are you next steps:
1. Activate your Parkside Account, if you haven't already.
2. Review your Math & English Placement if you haven't already.
3. Complete the Incoming Student Onboarding Canvas Course. The Onboarding course will review how to set up an appointment with your advisor to register for classes.
*First Year, Adult, and Re-entry/re-admit students should visit the appropriate page for further information on their next steps.
This information is for students starting for the Winter/Spring 2024 term.
We can't wait to welcome you to campus! Please read below for your next steps in committing to UW-Parkside.
*If you are beginning courses in Fall 2024, please return to our website February 1 for your next steps.
Incoming Student Onboarding Course
All incoming transfer students will need to complete the Incoming Student Onboarding Course in Canvas to set up an appointment with their academic advisor and register for classes. You can access the course below. Please note, you will need to have your Parkside account activated to access the course.
Please note, after completion of the onboarding course, you will be able to meet with an advisor to select classes for the upcoming semester. However, registration for our Winterim/Spring 2024 term(s) does not open until November 13. Therefore there may be a delay from the time you meet with an advisor to when you can register for classes.
*Remember, if you do not have any transferable Math or English credit, we ask that you please review your Math and English placements on our Placement website.
Transfer Connection Events
Various optional Transfer Connection Events for transfer students will be held to provide students with the opportunity to learn about campus resources and success tools at Parkside.
Transfer One Stop events are optional in-person programs that will allow students to obtain their Ranger ID Card, parking pass, register for classes in-person with an advisor, apply for housing, and speak with various campus departments such as Financial Aid and the University Bookstore. We highly encourage you to register if you are able to help with your transition to Parkside! You can register by clicking the link below.
