Academic Planning

Our Transfer Student Checklist for transfer students is a helpful outline of all you need to know (and submit) before arrival! You can expect to hear from us regularly. We’ll send information about living on campus, details on how to register for your first semester of classes, and reminders to prepare you for move-in. Keep up with your Richmond email, and we’ll keep you on track!

The College Deans support students as they become the best versions of themselves, including programs and mentorship that help students explore how gender affects each of us as part of our multi-layered identities.

Hitting the Ground Running

We know that you want to make the most of your time at Richmond—after orientation, your Spider story starts with getting involved! It’s never too soon to connect with career services, join student organizations, and start exploring opportunities for internships and study abroad.
