Yes! Fall Welcome hosts a program called Transfer Express geared specifically toward transfer students. We know the needs of transfer students differ from those of first-year students, but that transfer students also need the opportunity to become acclimated to WMU, campus resources, and the Kalamazoo community.
During Transfer Express you will be in a small group with other transfer students and an upperclassman leader. This will give you the opportunity to begin building relationships with your peers. You will attend a few of the Fall Welcome events, but there are also activities designed especially for transfer students. Transfer Express will help you become acclimated both socially and academically to WMU before classes begin.
You can register for Transfer Express by logging on to the Go WMU portal, signing on with your username and password, clicking the "First-Year Experience" box and following the links for Fall Welcome registration. As a transfer student, the system will automatically identify you as such and you will be enrolled in Transfer Express. After you register, you will receive an automatic confirmation page, as well as an e-mail sent to your WMU e-mail address.
The fee to participate in Transfer Express is $235 for students living on campus and $165 for students living off campus.
