The Transfer Center holds STAR Days (Students in Transition Advising and Registration Days) to assist new transfer students. The program lasts the full duration of a day, beginning 8:30 am and ending around 4:30 pm. Attendance at a STAR Day is required for all incoming transfer students. STAR Day is a student only program. Please leave your parents, siblings, partners and friends at home as we will not be able to grant them access to the program and will need to turn them away at the door. We are sorry, but child care is not available at STAR Day.
On your STAR Day, you will receive an overview of Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences policies, learn to use web resources, meet with advisors and register for your fall/spring classes.
STAR Day invitations will be e-mailed along with transfer evaluations beginning in early December for spring transfers and early May for fall transfers.
You will receive an email from the Transfer Center inviting you to register for a STAR Day after your file has been evaluated.
You can prepare for your STAR Day by doing the following:
- Visit the web site of the major and minor department you're interested in
- Familiarize yourself with the SAS Requirements
- Open a NetId and Rutgers email address
