August 2021 Orientation

Brandeis plans to maximize the opportunities for in-person learning and other on campus student experiences, consistent with public health advisories available in the fall. Information will be forthcoming as the University finalizes our plans for the Fall.

Transfer Student Orientation Information

Whether you are joining us in August or January, transfer students are strongly encouraged to participate in all Orientation events. Though you may have already participated in a new student orientation at a previous institution, our Orientation highlights all aspects of the Brandeis community - our resources, staff members, and fellow students - that are important for you to know.

You will be assigned an Orientation Leader and will be with a group of other transfer students, but you will also interact with other members of the Brandeis community. If you have any questions about transfer Orientation, please email
