New Student Programs | First-Year Student Emails


AUGUST 11, 2021

Hi there, {{Preferred}}!

Throughout the summer, you’ve been submitting forms and transcripts, keeping track of the New Transfer Student Checklist, attending advising meetings, and registering for your first Emory courses! That means, we’ve reached the point where it’s time to GET EXCITED that you’re joining us on campus in Atlanta later this month!

While there is certainly a lot to think about as you prepare, we’ll keep our advice simple:

  1. Familiarize yourself with the Transfer Orientation Week schedule. There are going to be A LOT of events to attend during your first days at Emory, so download The Hub’s Corq app now for a detailed Orientation Week schedule (you’ll continue using this app throughout the rest of your time at Emory). You can also check out the Transfer Orientation website to screenshot the at-a-glance schedules.

    In addition to Orientation events, we are hosting a number of events for sophomores and juniors who are returning to campus this semester. Transfer students are invited to participate! You can find information on the events in The Hub.

  2. Mark your calendar: Check-in for the Transfer Student Welcome + Coca-Cola Toast begins at 1:30pm in White Hall 208. This session is mandatory for all new transfer students.
  3. Stay up-to-date on Emory’s COVID-19 policies and practices.You can find the most current mask guidelines, screening requirements, and gathering restrictions on the Emory Forward website. For now, plan to mask up at indoor events on campus.
  4. Get Your Vaccines. Student Health will be at the Student Center throughout Move-in Weekend. The following vaccines will be available: Tdap, MMR, Hep B, Varicella (chicken pox), Meningitis ACWY and COVID (Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are available). If you need a COVID vaccine, please sign up here. All other vaccines - no appointment needed - just walk in!
  5. If you’ll be living on campus, carefully read and review all communications from Emory’s Residence Life and Housing Operations, so that you know what to pack and are prepared for your Move-in experience.
  6. Last but not least, start to picture yourself in the amazing city of Atlanta! How do you want to take full advantage of this awesome city you're about to call home? Look at what's waiting for you!
