Transfer Orientation

All transfer students who have less than 60 hours must attend a one-day orientation program to gain valuable information about the University and the campus and to become acquainted with other new students who are transferring to UNO.

Transfer Student Information

Every semester, UNO offers a Transfer Student Orientation to make the adjustment to campus both pleasant and successful. Our faculty and staff are available during their regular office hours and by appointment to give you the extra attention you may need. Approximately 60 percent of UNO's graduates began here as transfer students.

To transfer to the University of New Orleans, you should apply for admission at least one semester before you wish to enroll. You'll need to submit your application fee as well as complete, official transcripts from each college and university you have attended. If you are enrolled at another college when you apply, follow up with final records at the close of the semester.

The Office of Admissions will evaluate your academic work taken at other institutions for general university purposes. A complete transfer credit evaluation will be mailed to you once you are admitted and all official transcripts are received. The dean of your major college will determine which credits will be accepted towards your UNO degree.
