Transfer Schedules

Transfer Student schedule

Throughout the program, you’ll be part of a small group led by a current WSU student who is specially trained as an orientation counselor (an OC). Your OC is ready to serve as both mentor and friend, and will help you and your group get to know each other and get off to a great start at WSU.

Important note: You will need to attend the entire Alive! program for your registration to take effect. If you run into difficulties that may affect your ability to participate in any part of the program, please let us know—we’ll be happy to help in any way we can.

Parent & guest schedule

Parents and guests attend their own event track, separately from students. Since college is an independent experience, this gives students the autonomy and ownership they need.

Students will spend the day in small groups led by current WSU students who have been trained as orientation counselors (OC’s).

You’ll be in your own groups, led by orientation staff dedicated to helping parents and supporters. There will be plenty of points in the program where students and parents can connect and share notes.
