This is the first of several emails I’ll be sending you this summer to provide updates and reminders that are important for new students. Remember to check your WFU email regularly for emails from our office and others. Please read each email carefully so you do not miss critical information!

Please note that some of the dates listed on the New Student Website are not applicable to transfer students. You can view relevant deadlines and forms on the OAA Transfer Student Information Page.
