Adjusting to a new university can be tough. We're here to help.
Academic advisors from the Undergraduate Academic Advising Center will help you make sense of your transfer credits and degree requirements and will assist you in developing a personalize plan to help you in reaching your academic goals.
Below is a timeline to help you get organized:
Attending orientation is one of your first requirements as a new transfer student at Suffolk, and transfer student orientation is specifically designed to provide you with all the info you need to have a successful start at Suffolk.
You will use your MySuffolk account to register for courses, pay your tuition bill, check your writing & math placement scores, and learn your degree requirement.
All emails from the university will be sent to your Suffolk email account, so it is important that you check it daily. For easy access, forward it to your personal email account or set it up on your phone.
All transfer students receive a transfer equivalency report from Undergraduate Admissions. You can find it by logging in to your MySuffolk account. Make sure your courses transferred as you expected. If you're missing credit, send Undergraduate Admissions a final, official transcript from all of your previous schools.
Each semester the Advising Center offers a series of workshops designed to help new transfer students transition to their new life at Suffolk. We cover topics such as making the most of transfer credits, how to choose a major/minor program of study, how advising works at Suffolk, degree and graduation planning, and how to get involved.
Academic planning might mean different things to different people. And that's ok. Think of academic planning as a way you help you fit in all the pieces of your academic life - major requirements, internship opportunities, study abroad. In the end, you'll develop a picture that makes sense for you.
You'll also be confident that you're on your best possible pathway to graduation.
