TRANSFER STUDENT

ORIENTATION

Two Options:

TRANSFER EXPRESS EXPERIENCE
Saturday, August 21
9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

FULL ORIENTATION EXPERIENCE
Friday, August 20 thru
Sunday, August 22

We know that our Transfer students come to us with different needs and wants for their orientation experience. That’s why we offer two options for you. An “Express Experience” that is hyper-focused on the transfer transition process to Maryville, or you are welcome to Join us for the full-orientation to really get the full weekend experience. Both options are great, chose the one that works best for you! Also, don’t feel locked in, if you join us for the “Express Experience” and decide to stay longer or come back Sunday – you are always welcome at Maryville!

A detailed and customized schedule will be available in the Orientation app in August, here is a quick overview of the events planned for Orientation!
