As a transfer student new to the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions and Arizona State University, you are strongly encouraged to attend a transfer student welcome event. This program serves as an opportunity to learn more about ASU, the Watts College, ways to be involved on campus, public service opportunities, and a chance to talk to current transfer students and meet your peers. At orientation, you will discover aspects of ASU that will enhance your Sun Devil experience. The transfer student orientation program agenda includes the following opportunities for students:

  • Learn about the Watts College of Public Service & Community Solutions and our resources specifically for transfer students
  • Connect with a representative from the College and faculty and staff from the individual schools
  • Hear from current students in our college
  • Meet other transfer students
  • Hear from your faculty in each discipline 
  • Get important information from your specific schools
  • Learn about internships, requirements, and opportunities
  • Have a chance to ask any questions you may have
  • And much more!


(For class scheduling, specific/personal questions, and special circumstances/situations, students should schedule a 1:1 appointment with their advisor. There will not be an advising session during the Transfer Welcome)
