Transfer Student Orientation

Transfer Student Orientation

Welcome to Bloomsburg University and the Husky Family! To ease your transition to BU, the Orientation Office invites you to complete a required online orientation experience called T.O.U.R. (Transfer Online University Readiness).

OWL Olivia Bertram

T.O.U.R. is a required orientation. Failure to complete T.O.U.R. will result in a hold being placed on your account.

If you or your family would prefer an in-person orientation experience, you are welcome to attend a BU Preview day! BU Preview days offer are a perfect opportunity for new students and their families to meet faculty and current students, get a closer look at our scenic campus and learn about the activities and support services available to students.

For your convenience, Bloomsburg offers six different BU Preview dates to choose from:

  • June 20-22, 2016
  • July 11-13, 2016

Although attendance at an in-person orientation is not required by the Orientation Office, there are some academic departments that prefer transfer students do attend an in-person orientation. In such cases, please follow the instructions of your academic department.

Registration for orientation has now concluded. If you did not register for a date, a date will be assigned to you. Please check your BU email address for your assigned orientation date. If you have any questions, please contact 570-389-4595, or email

A tentative schedule of events for the in-person experience is available here.

Although the student meal is complimentary, if any guests plan to accompany you to the in-person orientation, please encourage them to pre-pay for their lunch. Pre-paying allows your guests to bypass the long wait times at the dining hall. Lunch tickets can be purchased in advanced here. Pre-payment of lunch is non-refundable.
