Transfer Orientation

Welcome to Virginia Wesleyan University!

We are excited to welcome you as a new member of the Marlin family!  VWU has dedicated transfer counselors who will assist you as you become a part of our campus family.  We will assist you throughout the admission process and help you gain access to the VWU network and email, and connect you with a faculty adviser who will assist you in registering for classes.  Our goal is to make the enrollment process a smooth one as you start your VWU journey.

The first step in becoming a Marlin is to contact your transfer counselor so we can get you connected with a faculty adviser. Call or email Lisa Nelson / 757-455-5717 or Nadine White-Shook / 757-455-3213 to connect with a faculty adviser and register for summer and/or fall classes. If you are currently taking courses, please bring unofficial transcripts to the advising appointment.  This information will assist your faculty adviser in creating a quality schedule.

The second step in becoming a Marlin is to visit the new student Orientation Portal, where you will register to attend orientation, and find forms related to student housing, vehicle registration, health, computer services and more. After you pay your tuition deposit you will receive a letter from Dr. Keith Moore, Vice President for Student Affairs, with information about how to access the portal.

If you have questions, please call or email Lisa Nelson 757-455-5717 or Nadine White-Shook / 757-455-3213
We look forward to working with you!
