Summer Email #5: Transfer Credit + Letter to Your Advisor (July 19, 2013)

Dear incoming Transfer, RUE, and Visiting students: 
(If you missed previous emails, they are available on our Orientation website.)

This email provides information on transfer credit processing and one important deadline.

* Transfer Credit*
In the next few weeks, we will process transfer credits for transfer students.  Your internal academic record, to which you have
electronic access, will indicate how many transfer credits you have been awarded by mid-August. At that time, if you feel an error has been made, please let us know. If we have not received your transfer credit form and final transcript(s), you should send these immediately.

* Summer Reading and Letter to your Advisor *
By now, we hope you have received a mailing from Brown including Beautiful Souls, and the summer academic planning booklet Planning Your Liberal Education. If you have not, please let us know. We hope you are noting upcoming deadlines, posted on the
Transfer, Visiting, RUE Orientation website.

One of those upcoming deadlines is for the Letter to Your Advisor, due August 15 for students entering in September, and January 3 for those entering in January. (Learn more about the letter to your advisor and submit your letter here.)

Moving forward, the Associate Dean for First-Year & Sophomore Studies Carol Cohen will be joining Dean Bhattacharyya to support your transition to Brown.  As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email either of us.
