Transfer Students

We understand that transfer students already have the experience to be successful students, so we have designed an Orientation program for you with that in mind. At this condensed "one-stop shop" Orientation, you will learn about Hood's support services available to you; receive your Hood ID, student mail box and other important documents; purchase a parking pass; and meet faculty, staff and other new students.

Parents and Family Members

We recognize that going to college is a new chapter not only in the lives of the students, but also in the lives of parents and family members, who are an integral part of each student's transition to Hood College. Parents and family members are invited to be involved in our Orientation program, which include sessions on academic and personal issues students will experience, information on financial matters, housing, dining and health concerns. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet other parents and family members, faculty and staff members. Learn more
