Transfer Students

This time is a charm.

We know you’ve done this before. So we’ll make this quick. We’ll introduce you to our campus, answer your questions, and help you start writing your Otterbein story.

You bring an understanding of college life from your prior experience. Therefore, we have designed an orientation program especially for you. This program will help you understand the Otterbein campus community and connect you with the information that you need to make a successful transition. The program will for students beginning in the fall will be held January 8, 2016 and will begin at 9:30am and conclude by 2:00pm. Please see the registration information below.
