Transfer Student Steps to Enrollment

After acceptance, please follow the suggested steps for enrollment completion.

Step 1: Register for Orientation

Orientation is required for all degree-seeking transfer students at UL Lafayette. You will receive a notification to register for orientation via postal mail in October (Spring semester transfer) or March (Summer/Fall semester transfer) or approximately seven business days after you are accepted to UL.

Step 2: Get Advised and Schedule Classes

Once you receive your notification from the Academic Success Center and Orientation invitation, you can reach out to an academic advisor to schedule an individual appointment.  Transfer students are advised in the declared major or through the Dean’s office of the major.  All transfer students must meet with an advisor before scheduling. Transfer advising will also be available at orientation for those who have not yet registered for classes.

Step 3: Complete the FAFSA

If you would like to apply for federal financial aid, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1 as possible. To apply, please add the UL’s school code, which is 002031. Please check your University email and Tuition & Aid through ULink for notifications from Financial Aid.

Please note: If you have been provisionally accepted, federal regulations prohibit our office from awarding you federal financial aid until all final official transcripts are received and your file is complete.

Step 4: Apply for Housing

If you’re interested in living on campus, you should apply for housing as soon as you’re accepted (or the Housing portal is live). All housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on when you apply for housing.

Step 5: Submit all Final Transcripts

In order to complete registration (Step 7), you’ll need to submit final official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended.

Step 6: Submit your Immunization Records

Louisiana law requires immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, and tetanus-diphtheria. The Office of Student Health Services collects all immunization records.

Step 7: Complete Registration

Completing registration requires paying tuition and fees associated with the registered semester. Tuition and fee bills are generated about one month prior to the start of the semester or after you schedule your courses.
