We want to make your transition to Saint Louis University as smooth as possible.
We’re here to help you get involved on campus, tell you about the resources that are here to support you, and to plan special activities and programs designed to help you achieve academic and personal success. Welcome to SLU.
Fall Welcome at SLU isn’t just for incoming freshman students. Multiple programs are designed specifically for transfer students to meet one another and to learn about SLU.

TRANSFERmations helps you get connected and quickly feel at home at SLU. The program includes five students who volunteer to be transfer mentors; these students are here to answer your questions and plan social programs that focus on transfer students. The program takes place over six weeks in the fall or three weeks for new students starting classes in the spring semester.
Most first- and second-year students at SLU are required to live on campus, including transfer students. The time you've spent attending another university is considered when determining if you fall under the residency requirement. Learn more about housing options at SLU.
First, attend the SLU Involvement Fair during Fall Welcome. Many student organizations and campus departments will be on hand to help you get involved and find your niche on campus. You can also explore student organizations through SLUGroups, and connect with the community through the Department of Campus Ministry and the Center for Service and Community Engagement.
