You've successfully signed up for Transfer NOMA Nation Orientation. Now what is required before you begin? Here is a checklist for you to follow:

  1. Final Transcripts
  2. Immunization Records
  3. Special Circumstance Request

Final Transcripts

The admissions team may not have time to process everyone’s transfer credit report due to the large number of incoming transfer students. We request that you bring a copy of all your unofficial transcripts. These let the admissions team put together your complete academic picture in a concise summary for your advisor, and doing so will make registration a smoother process for all.

Immunization Records

Immunization records are not required to attend orientation, but they are required 6 weeks before the start of your first semester. For more information, please visit Immunizations - Fall 2021 Entry

Special Circumstance Request

If you have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and you or your family have experienced a significant change in your financial circumstances, please complete a Special Circumstance Request and submit it to the Financial Aid Office.

If you are an independent student, please complete a Student Special Circumstance Request 2020-21 (PDF)

If you are a dependent student, please complete a Parent Special Circumstance Request 2020-21 (PDF)

The Special Circumstance Request is not required before Transfer NOMA Nation Orientation. For more information, please visit SSU's Financial Aid website.
