Please use the linked Counseling Services Transition Program Google Form to sign up for a date of your choice. Due to capacity issues we are limited to 25 students per group, if a date no longer is appearing/accepting responses, that means the session on that date is full.

Please note that a campus tour is also included in Freshman Orientation on Tuesday, August 29, so if your child cannot attend the transition program there will be other opportunities to tour the campus.

Please reach out to Mercedes Mariano ( with any questions or concerns related to this program.

*IMPORTANT NOTE - There is only a nurse available on campus until 1:00 PM on this date. If your student needs a nurse on campus, please select another date/time.
