Advising for Transfer Students


Are you transferring to UNI?

35% of new students each year are transfers

Congratulations! We're excited you are planning to attend UNI. Transferring to a new university can be an overwhelming and complicated process and the advisors at UNI are here to help you be successful.  You will be assigned an advisor in your major after you attend Orientation.

How do I know who my advisor is?

You can find out who your advisor is through your Student Center. Log in to MyUniverse and click on Student Center. You will see the name of your assigned academic advisor in the column on the right. Click “Details” to view their contact information.  

Should I do anything before transferring?


To ensure you have the best advising experience possible, have all college-level credits from previous institutions transferred to UNI prior to attending Orientation or as soon as final grades are posted for your final term. This includes sending transcripts from college-level courses you took while in high school. To see how your courses will transfer, please contact the Office of Admissions.
