Transfer and Non-traditional Students
Congratulations on choosing to continue your education at Clayton State University!
A student who graduated or would have graduated from high school five or more years ago. This includes both beginning freshman and those with previous college or university attendance.
A student who has enrolled previously in any accredited college or university and has 30 semester hours or more of transferable college credit and graduated or would have graduated from high school within the last five years.
Non-traditional and transfer students should register for the Express orientation session. Specific topic/breakout sessions may be available for non-traditional and transfer students during the express orientation session.
These sessions offer activities that are more brief in nature and include academic advisement and course registration. Parents/guests who register for this session will attend presentation sessions with their student (excluding academic advising and registration).
All Transfer and Non-Traditional students must attend an orientation session!
Check out the Office of Orientation "homepage" for exact dates.
Once you have registered for the orientation session please check your confirmation letter for the required check-in time and location of the program.
| All orientations are currently being held at our Main Campus in Morrow, GA
