York Hall ArchwayTransfer Student Orientation 

Welcome all new students. We have continually update the Revelle College orientation experience for each new year. We will keep you updated on any changes related to University safety guidelines that impact orientation and strive to provide you with what we know now so you can plan accordingly. 

Welcome Transfer Students!

We are here to help you get to know your new home at Revelle College. You’ll have Orientation Leaders to serve as your student guides as you learn about your academic, leadership, and involvement opportunities, and meet fellow students, staff, and faculty along the way. This is your time for a smooth transition to Triton and Revelle life.

Here you will find important upcoming deadlines. We will update this page later in the summer with an orientation schedule and reminders.
