Transition DePaul is our mandatory orientation program for incoming transfer and adult students, and consists of both an online component and on-campus experience. The first component is the online orientation and is intentionally designed to help students familiarize themselves with the tools needed to succeed and to prepare for on-campus orientation. We recognize that our transfer students have prior college experience, so the online orientation focuses on what is unique about DePaul.
This new student orientation provides students with information about the many resources available at Saddleback College. Students learn about student services, special programs, and other student support programs. They are introduced to MySite, the student information portal, and to policies and procedures carried out by Saddleback College.
