Transfer Orientation Schedule

Congratulations on your decision to attend St. Louis College of Pharmacy! Transfer students enrich our campus, bringing new perspectives to the community. We look forward to welcoming you to campus.

Orientation is a process that begins with your admittance to the College and culminates with the completion of your first year at STLCOP. You will receive information, peer mentoring, and brief online modules throughout the summer months to assist with the transition to STLCOP. To help you get connected to the College, we will put you in touch with student orientation leaders who will be able to answer your questions and share more about what life is like at the College. Updates and information will be distributed early in the summer.

Transfer students are required to attend the following Transfer Orientation.

  • Monday, August 13

During the fall semester, we will offer social events specifically designed to connect you to resources and your peers as you transition into the campus community. 

Students entering the Doctor of Pharmacy program also are required to attend Professional Student Orientation, held August 14-17. More information will be sent via email in August.

For questions, contact Andrea Guimaraes, director for student development and engagement,
