Congratulations on becoming a Seahawk! We are excited to welcome you to St. Mary’ College of Maryland (SMCM) and help you discover all that SMCM has to offer, from academic resources to making friends and getting involved, to becoming familiar with where things are on campus. Your experience at Orientation will provide you with a comprehensive introduction to our community and expectations, as well as provide you with all the support you need to transition successfully to the flock!
We recognize that transfers have different needs than first-time first year students. This program is an opportunity for new transfers to get to know each other and campus resources.
Transfer Orientation also gives new transfer students the chance and get acclimated after the first years arrive!
