transfer student orientation.
STARS peer mentors assist with the transition into the DePaul community during a student's first year. Students are offered various services that perpetuate their academic, cultural, transitional and leadership development. These students also can give back to the community later on in their academic careers by serving as peer mentors to future DePaul students.
The Transfer Peer Mentor program aims to jumpstart your success at DePaul by ensuring a successful transition. You will be guided through your first year at DePaul with a one on one peer mentor to support you.
Transition DePaul is our mandatory orientation program for
incoming transfer and adult students. Transition DePaul programs are
offered in the summer for students entering DePaul in the fall quarter,
in the winter months for students entering in the winter quarter, and in
March for students entering in the spring quarter.
We recognize that you may have attended an orientation already as
a freshman at another institution, and we also understand that your
needs are different from that of a freshman student. The one-day
Transition DePaul program is designed so that students have all their
student-related business taken care of prior to the start of classes.
At DePaul, students complete their required placement process
online before registering for orientation. To complete the placement
process, log in to Blue Demon Domain
with your user ID and password.
Please note – it can take up to two business days for placement tests to process.
One or two business days after you complete the placement
process, return to Blue Demon Domain to sign up for the orientation session
most convenient for you.
Note – registration for orientation closes 5-7 days before the program.
Once we receive your Transition DePaul reservation, a
confirmation email will be sent to you with the date, time and location
of your session. If you do not receive a confirmation email within 24
hours, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do NOT make any travel arrangements prior to receipt of the confirmation email.
