The Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences Transfer Center holds STAR Days (Students in Transition Advising and Registration Days) to assist new transfer students. On your STAR Day, you will receive an overview of the School of Arts and Sciences policies, learn to use web resources, meet with advisors, and register for your fall/spring classes. You will receive an email from the Transfer Center inviting you to register for a STAR Day after your transcripts have been evaluated.
