Transfer Orientation FAQs
-Why haven't I received an orientation packet yet?
All students who have paid their tuition deposit will be emailed orientation information (beginning in late May). If you have not received email, please contact the Admissions Office at 716-839-8225 to verify your deposit status and email address.
-I have already attended college and I came for a campus tour/Open House, do I need to attend orientation?
YES!!! You may have attended college in the past but you have not attended DAEMEN COLLEGE. The Transfer Orientation will update you on the policies and services specific to Daemen College. All new students are required to attend an orientation program.
-Where do I park during the program? Where do I go to check in?
For the summer program students may park in any Daemen College lot. Parking passes are not required during this time. Check-in for students will be held in the Wick Center.
-When is Orientation?
This year's Transfer Orientation Program will take place on August 6, 2014.
-Will I receive a confirmation that you have received my reservation for the program?
You should receive an email confirming your reservation for the orientation program approximately 24 hours after we've received your registration form (it may take longer if you have registered over the weekend).
-How long does the Transfer Orientation program last?
Transfer Orientation is a one-day program. The program begins at 9:00am and ends at approximately 3:00 p.m.
-May I register for classes without turning in my immunization records to health services?
New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires all college students to show proof of immunity to measles, mumps and rubella before being able to register for classes. This documentation needs to be on file with Health Services before a student will be allowed to register for classes. There are no exceptions. Send your records to Susan Girard in Health Services NOW to avoid complications in registering for your classes.
-When will I register for classes?
Once you have met all the registration requirements you may make an appointment to register. Contact Joe Pagano in Admissions at 716-839-8225 for details.
-Does my financial aid automatically transfer with me?
No! Transfer students must complete the FAFSA application which should include Daemen College's federal school code 002808. If you have already completed FAFSA and did not include Daemen's school code you will need to make that correction on your Student Aid Report (SAR) or online at www.fafsa.ed.gov if you completed your FAFSA online. Any questions regarding this process should be referred to the Daemen College Financial Aid Office at (716)839-8254.
-I am a readmit student. Do I still need to attend orientation?
Readmitted students are NOT required to attend an orientation session, but are welcome to attend to see what is new or has changed at Daemen.
-If I have a documented disability and request accommodations, who should I contact?
Please contact Kathleen Boone, Associate Dean of the College at 716-839-8301.
-How do I get my Student ID?
You will receive your student ID during the orientation program.
-Do I need a parking permit?
Not for the orientation program. You will receive information about acquiring a parking pass for the academic year during the orientation program.
-How can I find out about the student services on campus?
Information on student services is included in the orientation program.
