New Transfer and Post-baccalaureate students who are entering Western beginning Fall quarter are invited to attend Transitions, Western’s orientation, academic advising, and class registration program. The 2019 Transitions program hosts 3 sessions in July 2019, and offers a full student and family orientation program each session. Students attending Transitions will receive academic advising support and register for their Fall Quarter 2019 classes during the program.

Historically, about 25-30% of students attending Transitions will bring one or more family members who can attend family orientation. The Transitions program offers informative workshops related to core transition resources and services for students and family members, presentations focused on financial matters, campus and library tours, an info fair, and more!
