Step-By-Step: Incoming Transfer Students
Incoming transfer students for Fall 2022 will complete the following steps. Click across the tabs to learn more about each one!
1. Complete Pre-Advising Modules (available April 27)
2. Connect with your Advisor (details given upon completion of Pre-Advising Modules)
3. Register for Fall 2022 Classes
4. Attend Orientation (highly recommended)
5. Attend Frog Camp and Frogs First!
Opening April 27 in your myTCU portal, these modules will provide academic information specific to your college or school that will prepare you for registering for summer and/or fall classes. You may complete these at your own pace.
Students must complete their Pre-Advising Modules prior to meeting with their academic advisor and subsequently registering for classes.
To access the Pre-Advising Modules, login to my.tcu.edu, select the Admitted Student Task tile, then select Pre-Advising Modules. The link will take you to an external site.
If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817.257.8345.
After meeting with your academic advisor, you will be given an enrollment appointment. That is when you will be able to log into your my.tcu.edu portal and register for your summer and/or fall classes. In order for your enrollment appointment to open, you must have completed your pre-advising modules.
During this 1-day Orientation, students will learn more about campus resources and life as a TCU student with Orientation Leaders (OLs) in a small group setting. Each student will receive a personalized email with additional details a few days before Orientation.

What is Frog Camp?
Frog Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime program that introduces incoming students to the TCU community. This extended-orientation program is offered off-campus in different locations. Students walk away from Frog Camp with new friends, faculty/staff resources and upper-division mentors. Participants also get an inside look at what it means to be a Horned Frog, learn TCU traditions, and how to make a difference at TCU. We can’t promise campers sleep a lot while at camp, but we can promise they will have an unforgettable experience.
While not required, we HIGHLY encourage transfer students to attend Frog Camp! Transfer students may register for any Frog Camp, but we will have Transfer-specific small groups led by Transfer students at Frog Camp Challenge (August 11-13).
Learn more about Frog Camp!
Frogs First is held the weekend before school begins and is filled with fun activities for you to begin to meet new friends and make campus feel like home. We will have programs for all students to attend as well as programming specifically for our new transfer students! More information will be released over the summer.
