Transfer students are highly encouraged to attend Fall Welcome and will participate in programming specifically for them. We know the needs of transfer students differ from those of first-year students, but transfer students also need the opportunity to become acclimated to WMU, campus resources and the Kalamazoo community.
During Fall Welcome, transfer students will be assigned to a small group with other transfer students and an upperclass student leader. This will give you the opportunity to begin building relationships with your peers. You will attend many of the Fall Welcome events, but there are also activities designed specifically for transfer students. Fall Welcome will help you become acclimated both socially and academically to WMU before classes begin.
The fee to participate in Fall Welcome is $235 for students living on campus and $165 for students living off campus and will be billed to your student account in August and/or September.
