Due to COVID-19, this summer'sTransfer Registration sessions will be conducted online through the use of Zoom and JCU's Canvas Learning Management System.

***In addition, transfer students should plan on attending Transfer Transition Day, a half-day program that will educate students about the various John Carroll resources that will help members of our transfer population in their transitions to campus. This will be held on Friday, August 28, from 11:45 a.m.-3 p.m. This day is included in the fee for Transfer Orientation.

New for 2020: Virtual Resource Fair!

Throughout the months of July and August, staff members from a slate of John Carroll offices will be providing live presentations to highlight the services they provide to our students, followed by live Q & A sessions where participants can submit questions to the presenters in order to get an even stronger sense of the experiences and support we offer our students. Additionally, all presentations will be recorded and available online for anyone who isn't able to participate during the live webcast.

In early July, the schedule of presentations will be listed online as well as emailed to incoming students.
