Summer and Fall Transfer Student Orientation
Once you accept your admission offer, the process of orientation begins for you. Below is an outline of what you can expect from us before you get started on the Hilltop. You are encouraged to attend both a virtual Zoom registration day program in April, where we will assist you in registering for fall 2021 classes, and our in-person program in August immediately prior to the fall semester.While there is no additional program for the parent or family member you can bring with you, they are more than welcome to attend with you. Each parent or guest will be charged $10 for the lunch being served. Payment can be made prior by calling the Orientation Office at 309-677-2420 or paying on-site that day.
- A member of the Orientation team will walk you through any questions you have, as well as prepare you for the next steps in orientation and class registration.
- You will receive the B•Ready Newsletter every two weeks throughout the summer at your Bradley e-mail address. Make sure you're checking that and reading it thoroughly when it's sent out. It will have timely updates from each area on campus.
- Begin Bradley - our online orientation program, will be made available to you. You should take time to navigate through the whole program before you arrive on campus in August. This will be made available to you in late Spring or early Summer.
- The official Transfer Student Orientation will be held on Monday, August 23, 2021 from 12-3pm. At this event, you will get more detailed information on campus services and resources and how they will be helpful to you. You will receive an official invitation later.
