Campus Life

Transfer Students

This time is a charm.

We know you’ve done this before. So we’ll make this quick. We’ll introduce you to our campus, answer your questions, and help you start writing your Otterbein story.

You bring an understanding of college life from your prior experience. Therefore, we have designed an orientation program where you have the opportunity to meet other transfer students. This program will help you understand the Otterbein campus community and connect you with the information that you need to make a successful transition. Orientation for students planning to enroll at Otterbein for Fall 2018 can select one of the following dates: Thursday, June 21; Saturday, June 23; Friday, July 13; or Tuesday, August 14. Please see the registration information below.
