Transfer GO FAQ


What is Transfer GO?

Transfer GO is all about building community and getting to know what HBU is all about. Through the Full Day Experience session, students will get acclimated to campus, learn how to use some important systems, and establish relationships with new and returning Huskies! Lunch will include a panel discussion of students and staff, and in the afternoon, students will meet with an advisor, register for classes, and talk with Financial Aid.

Students may choose to attend the Full Day Experience or the PM Only Session
