Transfer Welcome Week

Transfer Welcome Week, August 20-23, is the official beginning of your experience as a Baylor Bear, giving you opportunities to connect with other incoming students, as well as with returning students who are excited to welcome you into the Baylor community.

As a new transfer student, you will experience the same Welcome Week activities as first-year students, along with events and activities that are just for you. Transfer Welcome Week incorporates important orientation elements to support you in your transition to Baylor, as well as traditional activities that bring the entire entering class together.

Transfer Welcome Week activities kick off on Thursday evening following Move2BU, and extend through Sunday night before your first day of classes. Parents and other guests are invited to join opening festivities on Thursday evening.

At Transfer Welcome Week you will:
  • Get to know other new transfer students
  • Experience memorable events designed to welcome you into the Baylor Family
  • Connect with returning student leaders who will journey with you throughout the experience and beyond
