For the August Transfer Registration, the day will begin at 10:30 a.m. The program concludes when you have finished registering for classes. Each faculty advisor's registration and appointment times will vary, so you should plan to be engaged with the Orientation program until 4:00pm. Click here to see the schedule for the day. 

***Please note that incoming transfer students who will be living on campus will be able to pick up their keys to their residence hall rooms from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. and then can move their belongings after they finish scheduling their fall classes at Transfer Registration Day.


When you enter the main gate of JCU, you will see the Dolan Science Center straight ahead. You should park in the lot to the right of the building, as the Transfer Regsitration Day activities will all be taking place inside of the Dolan Science Center.
