York Hall ArchwayTransfer Student Orientation 

Special Notice: We’re upgrading our Orientation Program for next year. The information found below only applies to the first-year class of 2022. Dates, times and fees subject to changes.

Welcome Class of 2022! We're excited to meet you at orientation. We're here to help you get to know your new home at Revelle College. You'll have Orientation Leaders to serve as your student guide as you learn about your academic, leadership, and involvement opportunities, and meet fellow students, staff, and faculty along the way. This is your chance for a smooth transition to Triton and Revelle Life

Below you'll find information about orientation sessions, a breakdown of costs, and a link to some frequently asked questions. A couple important notes:

  • Submit your Academic Background on the New Triton Advising site on the Virtual Advising Center by June 15. We want to know a little about you in order to provide proper academic orientation and course recommendations this summer.
  • Review your COMPASS online pre-orientation by July 31. Meet Revelle College and select topics you are interested in learning about once you arrive.
  • Register for orientation by July 31. Complete COMPASS to be directed to the Orientation registration page to select the date of your orientation. Register by the deadline listed below to avoid any late fees.
  • Download the Revelle App to start exploring Revelle College. This will be a tool you use as a resource for Orientation, so be sure to have it installed when you attend. Please contact us if you have any concerns about the app.

Printable version of the Transfer Student Orientation Schedule will be available in September.
