Transfer Students

Welcome to The College of New Jersey! The Office of Student Transitions will help guide you over the next few months as you prepare to start classes this fall.

Check back often!

Our website will be updated regularly between April-August, and will contain important information and communications about your transition to TCNJ.

Don’t hesitate to email us at with questions.

We couldn’t be more excited to have you join our campus community!


Your TCNJ email is the official communication method of the College. Make sure to check it every day so you don’t miss important information and deadlines!

You can also access the presentation from our Accepted Students Day session here.


We are moving forward with plans for a hybrid orientation this summer! Please save the date!

Part I: Academic Sessions (Tuesday, June 22)

These sessions include a department welcome and optional time to make adjustments (if needed) to your Fall 2021 schedule. The academic departments, with support from the Office of Records & Registration, will pre-register students prior to orientation and more details about this process will be sent to your TCNJ email address in early June.

The academic sessions will take place virtually in the morning (between 9:00a-12:00p) on Tuesday, June 22 for all incoming transfer students. Please click on the link below for finalized session times. The zoom link, meeting ID, and password for each session will be sent to students on Monday afternoon, June 21.

Part II: Optional On-Campus Program (Week of July 19)

All students will have the opportunity to attend an optional on-campus program. Exact events will depend on state restrictions due to the ongoing pandemic, however our hope is that we can provide traditional components including campus tours, a resource fair, icebreaker activities, and sessions for parents and guardians.

This program will run Monday, July 19 – Thursday, July 22 in the afternoon (1:00-4:30p). Students will be able to sign up for the day that works best for their schedule but should only attend one so we can accommodate everyone who wants to participate. Transfer students are highly encouraged to join us, even though your academic sessions will take place a few weeks prior.

  • RSVP Links can be found in the Transition Times Vol. III (June 2, 2021) and Vol. IV (June 16, 2021)
    • Deadline to register is Friday, June 25
