Transfer Student Orientation

Office of Student Life

(440) 826-2356,

The orientation session for transfer students is a full-day experience designed to help new transfer students with their transition to Baldwin Wallace. Transfer student orientation is for students entering BW in the fall. Students entering in the spring should attend spring orientation.

BW New Student Orientation sessions for summer 2020 will be online due to COVID-19.

Orientation is an important first step in your BW experience! It offers helpful information about college life, as well as the opportunity to meet other students, faculty and staff.

We are working hard to make your online orientation experience a great one — both informative and fun. Virtual orientation will take place on the same days as the previously scheduled in-person programs.

Although orientation will be virtual, you will need to be available for the entirety of your assigned orientation date, just as though you were attending in person. You will receive detailed information via email about scheduled online events for your orientation in the coming weeks.

Please use the information below to assist you in preparing for your orientation session, specifically the information about your required pre-schedule meeting.

2020 Orientation Dates:

  • Thursday, June 11
  • Tuesday, August 11
